Norway’s defense minister said in an interview, NATO needs to become more watchful about defending its members’ security, including in the Arctic, because of the ‘completely new’ situation created by Russia’s behavior towards Ukraine. Until now, NATO’s response to Russia’s annexation of Crimea has chiefly focused on reassuring anxious members in Central and Eastern Europe that until a generation ago were dominated – or, in the case of the Baltic states, directly ruled – by Moscow.
