‘Russia’s actions in Ukraine remain a matter of serious concern. A fragile ceasefire is in place, but Russia has not complied with the demands made by the international community, including immediate, complete withdrawal of all military equipment and personnel from Ukrainian territory. Despite massive international pressure, Russia has not demonstrated any willingness to change its course in Ukraine, which is in violation of international law,’ said Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende.
