NATO secretary general reaffirms support for Ukraine amid military threats from Russia.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg expressed concern over Russia's military actions in and around Ukraine and reaffirmed the Alliance's strong support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

According to an Ukrinform correspondent, Stoltenberg wrote this on his Twitter account.

"I called President Zelensky to express serious concern about Russia's military activities in and around Ukraine & ongoing ceasefire violations. NATO firmly supports Ukraine's sovereignty & territorial integrity. We remain committed to our close partnership," the tweet reads.

Earlier reports said that Russia continues its military escalation around Ukraine and a propaganda campaign to justify possible aggression against Ukraine.

Earlier, Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Ruslan Khomchak said in his speech to the Verkhovna Rada that Russia had deployed 28 battalion tactical groups along the state border of Ukraine, as well as in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine and Crimea, which poses a potential threat to Ukraine's national security.
