Biden, NATO set to unveil Ukraine aid

Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General



Washington, July 10

US President Joe Biden and leaders of other NATO member states are poised to unveil new aid and reiterate a membership pledge for Ukraine at a summit in Washington after the US leader vowed to defend Kyiv against Russia’s invasion.

A draft communique prepared for the meeting of the 32-nation alliance said the allies intend to provide Ukraine with minimum funding of 40 billion euros ($43.28 billion) in military aid within the next year, but stopped short of the multi-year commitment NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg had sought.

The draft seen by Reuters also strengthened past NATO language on China, calling it a “decisive enabler” of Russia’s war effort in Ukraine and saying Beijing continues to pose systemic challenges to Euro-Atlantic security.

Stoltenberg told reporters he expected allies will agree a “substantial” package for Ukraine and would expand other partnerships particularly in the Asia-Pacific region.

He said the package would involve a new NATO command for Ukraine to provide security assistance and training, and a long-term pledge to continue and sustain support for Kyiv. NATO members have already announced the delivery of five additional Patriot and other strategic air defence systems to help Ukraine. — Reuters
