“We will meet with Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba to discuss Ukraine’s most pressing needs and our long-term assistance. We will also meet with the foreign ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia and Moldova. Our three partners deal with Russian pressure in different ways. Therefore, at the meeting, we will take steps to help them protect their independence and strengthen their defense capabilities,” said Jens Stoltenberg.
NATO Secretary General also spoke about the importance of supporting Ukraine. According to him, the alliance will continue to support Ukraine for as long as it takes.
“President Putin fails in Ukraine, to which he responds with even more brutality — waves of rocket attacks on cities and civilian infrastructure, depriving Ukrainians of heat, light and food. This is a terrible beginning of winter for Ukraine. It is also a difficult time for the rest of Europe and the world as energy and food prices rise.
Yes, we are all paying for Russia’s war against Ukraine. But we pay with money, and Ukrainians pay with blood. And if Putin wins, we will all pay a much higher price in the coming years. If Putin and other authoritarian leaders see that the use of force is rewarded, they will continue to use force to achieve their goals. This will make our world more dangerous and all of us more vulnerable. So supporting Ukraine is in the interests of our security,” Stoltenberg said.
