NATO fears the war in Ukraine could last years

Russia's war in Ukraine could last for years”. This was stated by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in an interview with the German weekly "Bild am Sonntag".

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg believes that supplying Ukraine with modern weapons would increase the possibility of freeing the Donbas region from Russian control.

"We must be prepared for the fact that this may take years. We must not reduce our support for Ukraine, even if the costs are high, not only for military support but also for rising energy and food prices," he said. Stoltenberg.

Earlier, he said that at a NATO summit in Madrid later this month it was expected for members to agree on a package of aid to Ukraine that would make it easier for the country to transition from obsolete Soviet weapons to those that meet NATO standards.
