NATO leader says Ukraine’s war against Russia could last “years”: live updates


- Advertisment -

Russia’s war in Ukraine could last “years” and the effort would require Western support, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said in an interview published Sunday by the German publication Bild.

“We have to prepare for the fact that it could take years.” He said.

In an attempt to counter Russia’s further blows after its brutal invasion of neighboring Ukraine, international leaders have renewed their show of support in recent days, including a recommendation for Ukraine to join the European Union.

German Chancellor Olaf Schulz said in an interview with Germany’s DPA news agency published on Saturday that the Group of Seven had promised to support Ukraine “as long as necessary”.

He added that he wanted to discuss the issue with fellow G-7 leaders at a meeting scheduled this week.

“We want to make sure that the calculations of the Russian president (Vladimir Putin) do not work,” Scholz said.

And in his second surprise visit since the start of the war, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was in Kiev on Friday for continued support and military training.

Stoltenberg: Russian nuclear attack unlikely

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told Bilden that Western support should remain strong in Ukraine’s fight against Russia.

“We must not stop supporting Ukraine. Even if the costs are high, not only because of the military support, but also because of the rising cost of energy and food. With life. “

Stoltenberg insisted that while NATO was backing Ukraine with weapons and strong defenses on its eastern side, troops would not set foot in Ukraine.

He also said there was no possibility of a nuclear attack.

“We do not see a high level of readiness in the Russian nuclear forces,” Stoltenberg said.

British Report: Take Moral on Both Sides

Sunday’s update by the British Ministry of Defense on the war in Ukraine indicated that morale was declining on both sides of the line.

“Ukrainian forces may have suffered casualties in recent weeks, however, Russian morale is likely to remain particularly troubled.” The ministry tweeted. There have been cases of Russian units refusing orders and armed stand-offs between officers and their troops.

On the Russian side, morale is low due to weak leadership and few opportunities for troops to withdraw from combat units, the ministry said.

“Many Russian personnel of all ranks are also likely to be confused about the objectives of the war. The morale problems in the Russian forces are so significant that they are limiting Russia’s ability to achieve operational objectives.”

Ukraine’s bid to join the EU will be discussed in Brussels next week

The European Union’s executive arm on Friday recommended that Ukraine be placed on the path to membership, a symbolic incentive for the country to stop Russian aggression, which is killing civilians, flattening cities and endangering its very existence.

Ukrainian servicemen sit next to a destroyed Russian tank on an abandoned Russian tank near the village of Bilogorivka, far from Lisichensk in the Lugansk region, on June 17, 2022, amid Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The possibility of membership in the European Union, created to protect peace on the continent and to serve as a model for the rule of law and prosperity, fulfills the wishes of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his Western-looking citizens.

The European Commission’s recommendation that Ukraine become a candidate for membership will be discussed next week in Brussels by the leaders of the 27-nation bloc. The war has increased pressure on EU governments to fast-track Ukraine’s candidacy, but the process is expected to take years and EU members remain divided over how quickly and fully to welcome new members.
