DW's Christian F. Trippe talks to Alexander Hug, Principal Deputy Chief Monitor of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine.
The crisis in Ukraine was the impetus for NATO to reinvent itself, but is the alliance sufficiently invested in resolving the conflict itself? No one will declare the Minsk Agreement dead, but it's hard to find a pulse.
The first death of an OSCE monitor puts a spotlight on the continuing death toll in the eastern Ukrainian conflict. Investigations are underway into the incident that killed an American paramedic.
NATO ambassadors will meet their Russian counterpart to discuss a range of issues, including recent joint Russian-Belarusian war games. Western estimates say troop involvement was much higher than the Kremlin reported.
US Defense Secretary James Mattis has called Russia an international menace during a visit to Kyiv. He also discussed expanding the US's support for Ukraine's government in its fight against rebels.
