NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said, "Ukraine can win this war," while speaking to reporters via a video link on Sunday, APA reports citing CNN
"Russia's war in Ukraine is not going as Moscow have planned. It failed to take Kyiv," Stoltenberg said, "They’re pulling back from around Kharkiv, their major offensive in Donbass has stalled. Russia is not achieving its strategic objectives."
"Ukrainians are bravely defending their homeland. To help them to do so, allies have committed and delivered security assistance to Ukraine worth billions of dollars," Stoltenberg said.
Allies expressed strong support for Ukraine and "further strengthening of NATO's deterrence on defense and the longer-term implications of the war including on our future stance towards Russia," he added.
Moreover, he said, "NATO's door is open" to Sweden and Finland, calling their decision to apply "historic."
