As Russia shows no signs of seeking peace, NATO Allies’ continued support to Ukraine is crucial to helping them fight for their freedom.

Synopsis

As Russia shows no signs of seeking peace, NATO’s support to Ukraine in its fight for its freedom remains steadfast. Over the past year, Ukraine has made substantial progress on the battlefield, recapturing 50 per cent of the territory that Russia originally seized, and prevailing as a sovereign, independent, democratic nation. All while Russia is losing political influence in its near abroad, has incurred more than 300,000 casualties, lost a substantial part of its conventional forces, and is under significant economic pressure. Despite these failures, Russian aims in Ukraine have not changed, with President Putin setting Russia’s economy on a war footing, ramping up weapons production, and using winter, once again, as a weapon of war.
NATO Allies’ support to Ukraine’s fight for its freedom, and its right to self-defence, is even more important in the current scenario. Allies are providing additional financial support, more air defences and ammunition, and a training centre for Ukrainian pilots, on top of an ambitious work programme for 2024, which includes measures touching upon energy security, innovation and interoperability with NATO forces.
