The annual report of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, released on Tuesday, contains an estimate of the total amount of assistance that member states have provided to Ukraine since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion.
This was reported by Yevropeiska Pravda.
"After the invasion, NATO member states provided unprecedented support to Ukraine, allocating about $120 billion in military, humanitarian, and financial assistance in 2022," the document says.
It notes that the United States is the largest donor of aid to Ukraine, but European countries and Canada together have provided more than half of the total amount of aid; in addition, European Allies have hosted almost five million refugees from Ukraine.
As emphasized in the document, Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine is "the greatest security crisis in Europe since World War II" and a direct threat to the existence of the entire rules-based international order.
"Putin must not win. If he does, it will show that aggression works and that force is rewarded. This would be dangerous for our own security and for the whole world," the NATO Secretary General emphasized in his annual report.-
