This is stated in a statement following the Alliance’s ministerial meeting in Bucharest, writes European Pravda.
“In this context, NATO will continue to coordinate closely with relevant stakeholders, including international organizations, in particular the EU, as well as like-minded countries. Building on the support provided so far, we will help Ukraine strengthen its resilience, protect its people and resist Russian disinformation campaigns and lies,” the statement said.
The ministers stressed that Russia bears full responsibility for this war, a flagrant violation of international law and the principles of the UN Charter.
“Russia’s aggression, including its constant and shameless attacks on Ukrainian civilian and energy infrastructure, deprives millions of Ukrainians of basic human services. It has affected global food supplies and endangered the world’s most vulnerable countries and peoples,” the ministers said.
It also notes that those responsible for war crimes, including sexual violence, must be held accountable. NATO countries also condemn all those, including Belarus, who actively contribute to Russia’s aggressive war against Ukraine.
Alliance members will also help Ukraine rebuild its energy infrastructure and protect its people from missile attacks.
“We also remain resolute in supporting Ukraine’s long-term efforts towards post-war reconstruction and reform so that Ukraine can secure its free and democratic future, modernize its defense sector, enhance long-term interoperability, and deter future aggression,” the statement said.
Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that if Russia wins the war against Ukraine, the world will have to pay an even higher price, since authoritarian leaders in different countries will get a “green light” to use brute force.
