About the informed Yegor Chernev, Head of Ukraine’s Permanent Delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
“There is a discussion with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg about the depletion of weapons and ammunition for Ukraine in Western countries. Yes, indeed, there is such a trend, because no one prepared for such a large-scale and intense war.
But NATO is making every effort and deploying all available instruments so that the flow of aid not only does not decrease, but also grows.
1. NATO countries conduct an audit and review of all weapons and ammunition to find remnants in warehouses that can be transferred to Ukraine.
2. NATO exceptionally allowed its members not to meet mandatory standards for the availability of arms and ammunition to transfer part of the emergency supplies to Ukraine.
3. NATO negotiates long-term contracts with the world’s largest arms manufacturers months and years in advance. Part of the manufactured weapons will go to replenish the arsenals of countries that have exhausted their supplies after being transferred to Ukraine, part will go directly to us,” he said.
According to Chernev, “no matter how long the war lasts, no one will leave Ukraine”.
“NATO stands ready to support us for as long as it takes. And this means that in the war for resources and the arms race, Russia will surely lose. And we will win. No options,” he concluded.
NATO Parliamentary Assembly recognized the Russian Federation as a terrorist state and called for the establishment of a special international tribunal to punish Russian criminals.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg refused to negotiate with Russia until it ends the war in Ukraine. He said this at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Madrid.
“As long as Russia continues to behave in this way towards Ukraine, we will not be able to build a meaningful dialogue,” Stoltenberg said.
On February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “special military operation” in occupied Donbas. Russia launched missile attacks on the territory of Ukraine and launched a direct large-scale four-way invasion. The armed forces of Ukraine repel the enemy, the blitzkrieg plan – to capture Kiev in two or three days – failed, the Russian army retreated from the capital. The Russian military is committing thousands of war crimes and crimes against humanity across Ukraine.
