Crime and justice: – These events are part of an intensifying campaign that Russia continues to carry out across the Euro-Atlantic area, including on the territory of the alliance, it says in the statement.

Nato singles out the Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and the United Kingdom in particular, and points to sabotage, acts of violence, cyber attacks and disinformation campaigns as examples.

Recently, European security services have exposed a series of activities they call Russian espionage, including a spy network behind an online media house exposed in the Czech Republic.

European media have also reported that a member of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party is said to have received money from the pro-Russian media house, which the relevant politician himself denies.

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg condemns Russia’s behavior and calls on the country to comply with its international obligations.

– These actions will not deter us from supporting Ukraine, he signs X.
