Ukrainian war: NATO summit underway
Stoltenberg: "We have strengthened collective defense. Ready to defend ourselves"
The Russian armed invasion of Ukraine will have immediate and long-term consequences for the population and for the security of all countries of the Atlantic Alliance. This is the central theme of the meeting held in these hours between the defense ministers of the 30 member countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The objective, they explain, is to make Moscow understand that the group is ready to defend itself.
NATO has responded "in a unified way with tough sanctions", with "a major military, financial and humanitarian support to Ukraine, and strengthening its collective defense", "raising the alert of the military and with thousands of U.S. soldiers deployed in Europe", said the secretary general of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, shortly before the start of the summit which is also attended by Ukraine, Georgia, Finland, Sweden and the EU.
