NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday the alliance will not get dragged into an arms race with Russia but must counter Moscow's "aggressive actions" in Ukraine.Russia denies that it is directly involved in the 15-month conflict in Ukraine which has cost 6,500 lives.NATO insists that all such deployments are rotational and temporary but the three Baltic states last month called for a permanent NATO presence to deter Russia.Stoltenberg said five countries were already above the target, but overall, NATO's combined defence spending would still fall 1.5 percent this year.
