NATO Secretary General in Prague: Allies Must Maintain Support to Ukraine “For As Long As Necessary”.

NATO Foreign Ministers concluded two days of meetings and events in Prague, Czechia, on Friday with an informal session of the North Atlantic Council.

In a meeting chaired by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Allies made progress on preparations for the Washington Summit in July and agreed that providing support to Ukraine should remain a top priority, according to a press release.

Speaking after the Council, the Secretary General emphasised that NATO will take a greater coordination role in providing equipment and training to Ukraine. This move aims to “provide more predictability for Kyiv and address both immediate and longer-term needs.”

Stoltenberg noted that “practically all military aid to Ukraine – 99 percent – comes from NATO Allies,” affirming that it makes sense for NATO to play “a greater role” in these efforts. He also proposed a multi-year financial pledge for Ukraine.

“Russia must understand that it cannot wait us out,” Stoltenberg said, highlighting that since Russia’s full-scale invasion in 2022, “Allies have provided approximately 40 billion euros worth of military aid to Ukraine each year.”

He noted that to accelerate the end of the war, NATO members must maintain “at least” current levels of support to Ukraine “for as long as necessary.”

I really can’t see NATO’s biggest member ever passing another funding bill to Ukraine again. Hopefully by next year Europes industry is fully up and running and it can provide all Ukraine needs.

Russian information warfare seems to be the only successful capability they have and it only seems to work in one country.

We spent so long guarding against gray zone attacks in the Baltics no one thought to look inside the Republican Party.

Another #45 term means that the CCP can do whatever they want as NATO will be busy Supporting Ukraine without the USA. The only NATO member to invoke Article 5 was the USA (9/11) and everyone responded. It’s clear that NATO membership is the USA national interest so that Congress passed a law to prevent an Executive Order to exit. NATO says that the 2010 spending agreement is on track so his alleged delinquency by Europe is just to trigger his supporters not a reality. Since he’s convicted of 34 felony charges, in addition to proven fraud and rape charges,… Read more »

You forgot Jan 6. That in of itself is a reason for any American not to vote for him.

Good point, and as you suggest it is up to voters to be Patriots and uphold the Constitution of the United States. Specifically Amendment 14 section 3 that states he is ineligible for public office by engaging in insurrection or supporting the same. His choice to interfere with the peaceful transfer of power was engaging in insurrection and his promise to pardon the Capitol rioters was supporting insurrection. Since the corrupt Supreme Court Justices put party before country, so do not uphold the Constitution (14.3) it is for voters to correct that failure of textual jurisprudence by their choice for… Read more »

For As Long As Necessary..
General Ben Hodges has been clear that the lack of a clearly pronounced strategic objective and telling the RF what we won’t do has deflected attention from the objective, which is RF Defeat in Ukraine.
Specifically unconditional surrender of RF forces, long term reparation, war crime accountability, repatriation of Ukrainians to UA and ruzzians to RF all to be decided by Ukraine.
The escalation delusion and RF nuclear threats have persuaded the timid to favour the Crimlin for much too long, costing UA lives. No more.
