The meeting of the Russia-NATO Council is to take place on October 26, 2017 in Brussels, and one of the key issues to be discussed is the Ukrainian issue, Radio Liberty has reported.
"The joint Russia-NATO Council will meet in Brussels on October 26, the second time the body has convened this year," Radio Liberty said in a report later on Friday, referring to NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg's office.
According to the report, the meeting will focus on the conflicts in Ukraine and Afghanistan, as well as on ways of reducing the risk of clashes and accidents during military exercises and border surveillance.
The NATO-Russia Council last met in Brussels in March, 2017.
"Relations between NATO and Moscow have been seriously strained in the wake of Russia's illegal annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula in 2014 and because of Moscow's ongoing political, economic, and military support for separatists in parts of eastern Ukraine," the report reads.
