NEWPORT, Britain, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- NATO has established "a comprehensive and tailored package of measures" to help Ukraine, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Thursday during the ongoing NATO summit in Newport, southeast Wales of Britain.

The assistance from NATO, totaling about 15 million euros (about 19.42 million U.S. dollars), will include supports of logistics, rehabilitation for injured troops, cyber defence, and command and control and communications.

"We highly value Ukraine's contributions to our operations and the NATO Response Force. Ukraine has stood by NATO. Now in these difficult times, NATO stands by Ukraine," Rasmussen made the remarks at the meeting with leaders of NATO members and Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko.

He urged Russia to stop "aggressive" actions against Ukraine, withdraw troops from Ukraine and the border regions, and stop its action of "annexing" Crimea.

He added that the independence, integrity of sovereign and stability of Ukraine would be very crucial to the Euro-Atlantic security.
