NATO’s deputy head Alexander Vershbow has said that “Ukraine’s future lies with Europe” after the alliance held talks with officials from Kyiv.
The talks were held in Brussels on Tuesday, according to a NATO spokeswoman.
“The ambassadors expessed very strongly the fact that an independent, sovereign and stable Ukraine remains key to European security, said Oana Lungescu.
“Thats why we continue to follow with great concern and great attention what is happening in Ukraine.”
Vershbow said on Twitter that all “should refrain from violence [and] engage in political dialogue.”
