Volodymyr Zelensky arrived in Brussels to participate in the 6th Eastern Partnership Summit and to meet with NATO President Jens Stoltenberg.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky are holding a joint press conference following their meeting in Brussels.
The meeting was focused on the ongoing tensions between Kiev and Moscow, amid claims and counter-claims of a Russian military build-up on the border with Ukraine. Discussions were also expected to include Ukraine’s partnership with NATO and the alliance’s expansion into Eastern Europe.
Tensions around Ukraine have been aggravated in the past several weeks by Western claims of an alleged Russian troop buildup near the Ukrainian border and MSM reports about Moscow's "invasion" plans.
Moscow has repeatedly denied these accusations, pointing to NATO's military activity near Russian borders, which it has deemed a threat to its national security. Russia has also said it has the right to move forces within its own territory and at its own discretion.
