NATO's initiative to coordinate military assistance

Jun 14, 2024

According to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Rustem Umerov, NATO's initiative to strengthen the coordination of arms supplies to Ukraine involves more management involvement of the Alliance and will help avoid delays.

This was reported by ArmyInform.


"We have talked with Jens Stoltenberg on this issue. NATO wants to get involved to strengthen our coalition by supporting our bilateral relations with partners," Umerov said.

According to the Ukrainian defense minister, many of the countries that are part of the Ramstein format are NATO members, so the organization is seeking to get involved in managing the delivery of international technical assistance, financing and functional support for the assistance provided.

"Sometimes NATO says that some countries give commitments that are not timely, and NATO wants to close these management issues in order to communicate more and have a legal mandate to join. So that they can legally call countries on behalf of NATO and ask whether the military, technical, and financial assistance has arrived," he explained.

In case there are delays in providing assistance to Ukraine, NATO will use its capabilities, Umerov noted.

"That is, they want to join legally to provide support. This format expands our relations so that we receive this assistance on time," the Defense Minister said.
