NATO Secretary General: the supply of weapons to Kyiv will give him the opportunity to return Donbass under control Deliveries of modern weapons to Kyiv can give Ukrainian troops the opportunity to return Donbass under control, said NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg. However, he admitted that the conflict could “drag on for years”
No one knows how long the military conflict in Ukraine will last, but NATO must be ready to assist Kyiv in the context of protracted hostilities. This was stated by the Secretary General of the organization Jens Stoltenberg in an interview with Bild.
“We must prepare for the fact that it [the conflict in Ukraine] may take years. We must not withdraw our support for Ukraine, even though the costs are high— not only for military aid, but also because of the rise in energy and food prices,” — he said.
According to Stoltenberg, further deliveries of modern weapons to Kyiv could increase the chances that Ukraine will be able to regain control of the Donbass.
NATO Secretary General once again stressed that the alliance will continue to support Ukraine on the defensive, but it is not part of the conflict. “We are helping the country, but we are not going to send NATO soldiers to Ukraine,” — he assured.
Earlier, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that London and Western allies should be prepared for a protracted conflict in Ukraine. According to him, they must ensure the supply of weapons and ammunition to Kyiv and train the Ukrainian military faster than the Russian side.
The British Prime Minister pointed out the need to continue to support Kyiv, despite the danger of “Ukraine fatigue” as the fighting drags on.

The fact that the United States and allies are preparing for a protracted conflict in Ukraine was previously reported by The Washington Post. The source of the publication noted that the increase in the supply of American weapons is aimed at preventing the prolongation of hostilities, since the United States is thus trying to get Moscow to refuse to continue them and strengthen Kyiv's position in the negotiations.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the goal ” ;fuss» around such supplies— prolong the conflict as much as possible. At the same time, the Kremlin emphasized that the goals of the military operation in Ukraine would be fulfilled, despite the “pumping” Kyiv with Western weapons.
