Ukraine, Stoltenberg: “More aid to Kiev”

“Belarus stop being complicit in the war”

In Ukraine “in recent weeks we have seen the most serious escalation of the war since the invasion in February”, therefore NATO defense ministers today will discuss among other things how “increase support for Ukraine: the top priority will be to provide more air defense“in Kiev. This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, on the sidelines of the Defense Ministerial in Brussels.

NATO observed “how Belarusian territory was used to launch missile attacks against Ukraine: President Aleksandr Lukashenko should stop helping Russia. He should stop being complicit in this war“.

The meeting is also attended by Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov: “The message – continues Stoltenberg – will be that our support for Ukraine is unwavering and that we are ready to do so in the long term. We will support them for as long as necessary. We will also deal with how to replenish our stocks, because the allies have provided support to Ukraine by reducing their stocks of armaments and ammunition. ”

“It was the right thing to do – he concludes – but now stocks need to be replenished: I expect ministers to review our guidelines on stocks and also to interact more with industry: at NATO we have tools to interact with industry and to provide them with long-term demand, which allows them to invest more in production capacity, so that we can produce more weapons. ”
