NATO agrees on a plan to strengthen assistance to Ukraine

Jun 14, 2024

NATO defense ministers have approved a plan to expand support for Ukraine. This was announced by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.


In particular, the decision defines how the Alliance will manage the coordination of security assistance and exercises.

The plan approved by NATO stipulates that in the future, the Alliance will take over the international coordination of arms supplies and training for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

NATO will create an analog of the US Security Assistance Group-Ukraine (SAG-U), which operates at the European headquarters of the US Armed Forces in Wiesbaden, Germany, and has about 300 military personnel.

The document was adopted by written procedure on the sidelines of a meeting of NATO defense ministers in Brussels and will be made public on Friday after official approval by the ministers, DPA reports.

"These efforts are aimed at ensuring that NATO does not become a party to the conflict, but they will strengthen our support for Ukraine in defending its right to self-defense," the Secretary General said.
