BRUSSELS — NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg dodged a Kyiv Post question on Feb. 14 about U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s Russian ties, signaling that he wants to avoid confrontation with the White House and take encouragement from the pro-NATO stance of other U.S. officials.

At a NATO headquarters doorstep press briefing with Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis, the Kyiv Post asked: “Do you think that Russia has compromising information on President Donald Trump? If yes, what can be done about it? If no, how do you explain his pro-Putin positions and his continued misunderstanding of Russia’s war against Ukraine?”

Stoltenberg answered by confidently emphasizing the positives in the U.S.-NATO relationship.
