"Putin is not preparing for peace. He is planning for new attacks against Ukraine," said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said at a briefing before the meeting of the organization's defense ministers that will take place tomorrow, APA reports.

"We must provide Ukraine with the weapons it needs for self-defense and victory. We will discuss the important needs of Ukraine tomorrow and have already declared that we will stand by Ukraine as long as it is needed.

Before Russia seizes the initiative on the battlefield, ammunition, fuel, and spare parts must be delivered to Ukraine timely. Fast delivery will save lives, " Stoltenberg stressed.
