transatlantic alliance of forces NATO has requested increased military assistance for Ukraine.
Since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, much to Russia’s dismay, NATO has supported Ukraine militarily, economically, and diplomatically under the leadership of its founding members, the US and the UK.
Finland and Sweden, two nations that border Russia, will also join NATO. After nine months of battle, the war has transitioned into a new phase, and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has urged NATO members to give Ukraine more weapons.
“I request more action from allies. Making sure Ukraine wins and [Russian President Vladimir] Putin loses is in the best interests of all of our security, Stoltenberg told the German news agency DPA.
We know that most wars end at the negotiating table, and most likely this war will as well, but we also know that the military position is intrinsically linked to what Ukraine can achieve in these negotiations.
