No one knows how long Russia's war against Ukraine will last. But we must support the Ukrainians so that peace does come.
This was reported by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in an interview with Die Welt.
"No one knows when this war will end. We know one thing: if you want peace tomorrow, you must support Ukraine today. It sounds strange, but the path to peace lies through the supply of weapons. Our security interests go beyond solidarity with Ukraine, because if Putin succeeds, others will learn from it," Stoltenberg said.
According to him, now the autocrats of the whole world are watching how NATO reacts to the Russian invasion of Ukraine
"We also know that Russia uses energy as a weapon. And China also uses its economic power to serve its own interests. We must understand that economic decisions can have consequences for security policy. They always say: war is too serious a matter to be entrusted to its generals Yes, and sometimes too serious to leave it to the oligarchs," Stoltenberg concluded.
The end of the war: what they say about it in Ukraine and beyond
We will remind you that earlier the head of Ukrainian intelligence, Kyrylo Budanov, said that this year will be a victory for Ukraine and announced a major counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the spring.
Also, the GUR of the Ministry of Defense believes that the decisive moment in the war will be this spring and the beginning of summer, and after this stage it will be possible to talk about the terms of the end of the war.
Meanwhile, a number of world leaders are cautious in their predictions about the end of the war, but unanimously say that the coming months will be decisive for Ukraine.
