Putin's 'foreign legion' remark is nonsense, says Nato
January 27 , 2015
Jens Stoltenberg, the Nato secretary general, has said that Russian president Vladimir Putin’s claim that Ukraine’s army was working as a “foreign legion” for Nato, is “nonsense”.
According to media reports, Stoltenberg also urged Russia to stop providing military assistance to separatists in eastern Ukraine.
There has been a deadly upsurge in violence in eastern Ukraine in the past week. On Monday, the Ukrainian military said seven soldiers were killed in the fighting in the past 24 hours.
