Romania: Western military alliance NATO will not withdraw support for Ukraine to counter Russian aggression. Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg made such comments on Tuesday. Stoltenberg attended the NATO foreign ministers’ meeting in Bucharest, Romania, on Tuesday. After the meeting, he said, “Our meeting in Bucharest is a strong message of NATO’s unity and sustained support for Ukraine. We will continue to support Ukraine as long as needed. We will not back down.”
NATO has also promised to provide fuel and generators to Ukraine against Russia’s assault. Nato chief Stoltenberg said that the “door is open” to new members but said that “the focus now was on assisting Ukraine in its fight with Moscow”. Allies have overcommitted to NATO’s comprehensive aid package for Ukraine. The meeting in Romania also discussed Ukraine’s application for NATO membership. Jens Stoltenberg said the foreign ministers confirmed NATO’s support for Ukraine’s right to choose its own path.
Oleksiy Arestovych, who is an aide to the Ukrainian president, said “several concrete and important announcements were made at the summit. Ukraine can become a member of the alliance after the end of hostilities and support to Ukraine will be expanded in terms of energy and military.” Not only that, they have extended full support to Ukrainian soldiers in regard to restoring power supplies in various regions where it was cut due to the Russian attacks.
