Ukraine’s ambassador to NATO on the results of the Council meeting: Allies have made it clear this is no time to wait for the better days, they have to continue to provide assistance

At a NATO-Ukraine Council meeting of Chiefs of Defense held on January 17, Ukraine’s partners took a clear stand on providing continuing further assistance to Ukraine as an imperative. 

Nataliia Galibarenko, Head of Ukraine’s Mission to NATO made this statement at a briefing at the Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform. 

“Yesterday, on behalf of Zaluzhnyi, who was meant to attend a meeting but could not make it, the military representative of Ukraine to NATO brought the relevant signals to our partners’ notice. He mainly reported on the current situation at the front, informed about our future plans for combat operations, and proved the Armed Forces of Ukraine’s air needs for defense resources in particular. But more importantly, we gain an understanding from our partners that now is not the time to bide our time, but to continue providing assistance,” she said.

According to Nataliia Galibarenko, this meeting is critical because it fits into the framework of the dialogue when specific decisions on assistance to Ukraine will be made.

“Brussels will host defense leaders in February. We are also planning a Ramstein-format meeting. That is, specific decisions will be made to sustain and further strengthen support for Ukraine,” added the Ukraine’s Ambassador to NATO.
