“There should be no room for miscalculations or misunderstandings. We will do everything we can to protect and defend every Allied and every inch of NATO territory.” Stoltenberg also accused Russia of trying to overthrow the Ukrainian government.

“We see rhetoric, messages that clearly indicate that the goal is to overthrow the democratically elected government in Kyiv,” he told a news conference after a virtual meeting of NATO leaders.
