NATO has suspended cooperation with Russia
10:16, 02 April 2014, 562

AKIPRESS.COM - NATO-Russia Foreign Ministers of 28-nation NATO bloc announced Tuesday a decision to suspend all practical contacts with Moscow following Russia’s reunification with Crimea which the West considers “occupation and annexation,” RIA Novosti reported.

“We have decided to suspend all practical civilian and military cooperation between NATO and Russia,” the ministers said in a joint statement. “Our political dialogue in the NATO-Russia Council can continue, as necessary, at the Ambassadorial level and above, to allow us to exchange views, first and foremost on this crisis.”

Tensions between Russia and the West rose after the ouster of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych in February, following months of demonstrations in support of Ukraine’s integration with Europe.

Russia's subsequent reunification with Ukraine’s autonomous region of Crimea, after a referendum that was later condemned as illegal by the UN General Assembly, triggered the deepest crisis in relations between Moscow and the West since the end of Cold War.
