NATO Secretary-General Confirms Alliance Intensification of Aid to Ukraine

  • NATO

Brussels, September 24 (QNA) - NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg confirmed that the alliance has intensified its aid to Ukraine in response to Russia's "sham" referendums in four Ukrainian regions.
The NATO response to the Russian move is to intensify support for the Kyiv authorities, Stoltenberg said, noting that the best way to end this conflict is to continue strengthening the Ukrainians on the battlefield so that they are able, at some point, to sit down and come up with an acceptable solution to Ukraine and preserves its sovereignty and independence as part of Europe.
This is exactly what we want to be prepared for, which is that Russia will use these sham referendums to escalate its operation in Ukraine, he added, at a time when the move raised fears that Moscow could annex the four regions located in eastern and southern Ukraine.
The Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation announced, yesterday, the start of annexation referendums in the Ukrainian regions fully or partially under the control of Russia, Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye, a move that Kyiv and Western countries considered "sham". (QNA)
