FRANKFURT, 20 June 2022, (TON): NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told media “Russia’s war in Ukraine could take years.”
He added “the supply of state-of-the-art weaponry to Ukrainian troops would increase the chance of liberating the Donbas region from Russian control.”
“We must prepare for the fact that it could take years. We must not let up in supporting Ukraine,” Stoltenberg told Bild am Sonntag.
“Even if the costs are high, not only for military support, also because of rising energy and food prices.”
Stoltenberg said “a NATO summit in Madrid later this month is expected to agree an assistance package for Ukraine that will help the country with the move from old Soviet-era weaponry to NATO standard gear.”
