The ministers expressed concerns about the increased military presence of the Russian Federation at the Ukrainian border over the past few months, urging the Russian Federation to immediately de-escalate the situation.

The ministers also discussed Russian proposals for draft agreements on security assurances, the new European security architecture, and further engagement between NATO and the Russian Federation.
