NATO’s task to support Ukraine - Stoltenberg

In the wake of Russian aggression toward Ukraine, one of the tasks that NATO has is to fulfill is to support Kyiv in this war, unleashed by Russia.

That’s according to Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General, who addressed an event in Utoya, Norway, Ukrinform reports.

“In this conflict, NATO has two tasks. Support Ukraine. And prevent the conflict from spreading into a full-scale war between NATO and Russia,” Stoltenberg said.

The secretary general said NATO supports Ukraine in their right to self-defense, adding that this right is “enshrined in international law.”

“The Ukrainian people have shown great courage throughout the war,” Stoltenberg stressed.

NATO has “a moral responsibility” to support Ukraine, the NATO chief noted.

“They are an independent country, with over 40 million people, who are unjustifiably subject to a brutal war of aggression. We are seeing acts of war, attacks on civilians and destruction not seen since World War 2. We cannot be indifferent to this,” the top NATO official emphasized.

He added that the price the West is paying for the consequences of Russian aggression toward Ukraine is incomparably smaller than that Ukraine pays every day.

“We pay a price for our support to Ukraine. For the military, humanitarian and financial support. For the sanctions, which have resulted in increased inflation and higher prices in our countries. But remember – the price we pay may be measured in money. The price Ukraine pays is measured in human lives. Hundreds killed or wounded every day,” said Stoltenberg.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine in a phone call with Jens Stoltenberg spoke of the need to deliver to Ukraine as soon as possible more heavy weaponry to efficiently repulse Russian attacks and move to counteroffensive.
