Jens Stoltenberg said that Ukraine needs a “significant increase” in weapons as the country are at a pivotal moment in the war with Russia.
Stoltenberg said the support in supplying Ukraine with more weapons is the only route to negotiating a peaceful solution with Moscow and Vladimir Putin.
Stoltenberg said, “President Putin has shown no sign of preparing for peace and therefore he must realise he cannot win on battlefield.
“This is a pivotal moment in the war and the need for a significant increase in support for Ukraine.
“If we want a negotiated peaceful solution tomorrow, we need to provide more weapons today.”
Ukraine has already received Patriot air defence systems and that these must outpace the level of Russian missile attacks.
He was asked where Russia’s place in the world is, Zelensky said, “I think that Russia has already earned a place among terrorists and this no longer depends on their leadership,” and insisted Moscow must “respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity.”
He was then asked if he is concerned for his safety, and said, “I’m not worried about that.”
