NATO should seek to expand and strengthen partnerships with Ukraine and Georgia as vulnerable democracies that seek membership and areunder constant external and internal pressure from Russia, - notes the document prepared by a group of experts appointed by the Secretary General of NATO: "NATO 2030: United for a new era, analysis and recommendations."
"The Russian government seeks hegemony over its former Soviet possessions and undermines their sovereignty and territorial integrity, seeking to block the path of nations that want to move toward NATO.
NATO should expand and strengthenpartnerships with Ukraine and Georgia, seek to heighten engagement with Bosnia and Herzegovina,and counter destabilisation across the Western Balkans", - reads the document.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg appointed a group of independent experts in April 2020. The experts presented the document, which includes analysis and recommendations, to the Secretary General on November 25, and to the NATO Foreign Ministers yesterday.
