Media: NATO refuses Stoltenberg’s meeting with released Ukrainian sailors to avoid irritating Russia

Ukraine proposed to organize a meeting of NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg with Ukrainian sailors released from Russia in Odessa, but the NATO rejected the proposal, reports Mirror Weekly news outlet, citing its sources.

According to the publication, France turned out to be the primary opponent, not wanting to irritate Russia with a meeting that, according to Paris, could “disrupt the peace process and negatively affect the preparation for the Normandy Four negotiations.”

Stoltenberg and the North Atlantic Council visited Odessa on October 30. The Secretary-General addressed the students at the Odessa National Maritime Academy.
