Nato pledges more military, financial and humanitarian aid to Ukraine
Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has pledged more support for Ukraine.
Speaking after an emergency meeting of coalition defense ministers at headquarters in Brussels, he said they agreed “we must continue to provide substantial military assistance to Ukraine, including military supplies, financial aid and humanitarian aid”.
Mr. Stoltenberg announced that the coalition would strengthen the defenses on its eastern flank after the Russian invasion.
“We are faced with a new reality about our security, so we must re-establish our collective defense and deterrence over the long term,” he said.
“On land, our new posture should include significantly more forces in the eastern part of the alliance at a higher state of readiness with more pre-prepared equipment and supplies.
“In the air, add allied air power and strengthen, integrate, air and missile defense.
“At sea, strike groups of aircraft carriers, submarines and significant numbers of combat ships on an enduring basis.”
The forces will also train and exercise together “more often and in greater numbers,” he said.
Leaders from 30 NATO member states, including US President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Boris Johnson, will hold a crisis summit next Thursday.
