The Secretary General of NATO said in Brussels, on Wednesday, after a meeting of the alliance's political decision-making body, the North Atlantic Council, that NATO considers it necessary for the US Congress to continue supporting Ukraine. Jens Stoltenberg stressed in the joint press conference with the US President's National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan: Supporting Ukraine is not an act of charity, but is related to our security.
A Russian victory would weaken us and embolden not only Moscow, but also China, Iran, and North Korea. The Secretary-General of NATO warned that this would affect the security of Europe and America.
He stressed that continued military support for Ukraine will help Kiev destroy Russia's combat capability, and will also contribute to achieving freedom. He stressed that the support of allies brings about change on the battlefield every day. He added that he expects all allies to adhere to their previous commitments to support Ukraine and contribute to strengthening their country's – and thus the alliance's – military deterrence and defense capabilities.
Moscow should have no doubt that the alliance is capable of protecting all its member states
In response to a question, the Secretary-General of NATO expressed his hope that the Hungarian Parliament would soon ratify Sweden’s accession to the military alliance. He added that Sweden's membership in NATO makes the entire alliance bigger and stronger. Jake Sullivan stated at the press conference that the United States can and will continue to provide military assistance to Ukraine. He stressed that there is no alternative to the United States' commitment to a level that allows Ukraine to possess the artillery weapons, air defense systems and other capabilities it needs.
There is no plan B. The White House is focused on getting the aid package for Ukraine through the approval of the US Congress
– Sullivan said, then added: American support not only helps in national defense warfare, it also helps create the long-term deterrence capability of a NATO member state.
