NATO allies ‘agree Ukraine will become member’

Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg says that all NATO members have agreed to Ukraine becoming a member.

He told reporters, ahead of a meeting at the Ramstein airbase in Germany of the Ukraine Defence Contact Group, that once the war in Ukraine is over, Kyiv will need “the deterrence necessary to prevent any new attacks”.

He stated that the priority is to win the war against Russia.

This comes after Mr Stoltenberg yesterday pledged to continue support for the country on his first visit since Russia’s recent invasion.


He said at a press conference: “Let’s be clear. Ukraine has a rightful place in the Euro-Atlantic Family.”

The rightful place for Ukraine is NATO.
