Donetsk, Nov 30 — DAN. Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov has said that the new NATO-Ukraine cooperation program is provocative in nature.

“It is perfectly clear that NATO intends to continue interaction with Ukraine, ” the Kremlin representative said. “Yes, this is what we dislike and this is what we consider as NATO actions that are quite provocative with regard to our apprehensions about security.”

“The document signed offers nothing new; it is not the first cooperation program, ” he said.

Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Jens Stoltenberg said after the NATO-Ukraine Council meeting on Wednesday that the alliance and Kiev had adopted a program of cooperation for 2024 which included energy security and Ukrainian army training.*jk
