Ukraine, Jens Stoltenberg thinks post-war: an aid package for Kiev

NATO and Stoltenberg are already thinking about post-war Ukraine. After the end of hostilities, Ukraine must be guaranteed the possibility to defend itself against any further attacks by the Kremlin’s military forces. For this reason, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announces a multi-year support package in Kiev. We will discuss a multi-year support package with substantial funding to ensure that Ukraine can defend itself over the long term, move from the Soviet era to NATO standards, achieve full interoperability with NATO, reform and rebuild its security and defense sector. We must ensure that credible agreements for Ukraine’s security are in place when this war ends.”

In the context of the NATO ministerial meeting, the meeting of the nuclear planning group will be held. We continue to see reckless nuclear rhetoric from Russia. In recent months, Moscow suspended participation in the New Start treaty “on the reduction of atomic weapons” and decided to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus. The statement was made by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the press conference on the eve of the meeting of NATO defense ministers. “Ministers will discuss aspects relating to nuclear energy in the current security environment and will consider an ongoing adaptation in NATO’s nuclear deterrence,” added the Secretary General.
