Circle of Russian Aggression Should be Broken, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg Says

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in an interview with Reuters that with the end of the war in Ukraine, the circle of Russian aggression should be broken.

According to him, Russia should not be allowed to undermine European security.

"We don't know when the war will end, but we know that when this war ends, it must ensure that history does not repeat itself. This is part of a pattern: Georgia in 2008, Donbass, Crimea in 2014, and then a full-scale intervention last year. We must ensure that the circle of Russian aggression is broken. We must not allow Russia to undermine European security. Accordingly, we must ensure that Ukraine has military capabilities, strength, deter aggression, and also find mechanisms so that Russia does not attack anyone again after the end of this war," said Jens Stoltenberg.

According to Stoltenberg, Ukraine and Russia are not equal parties in the war, because one is the aggressor and the other is the victim.

"If President Putin and Russia stop fighting, the war will end and we will have peace." If President Zelenskyy and Ukraine stop fighting, Ukraine will cease to exist as a sovereign, independent country. So, these are not two equal sides - it is the aggressor and the victim of aggression," said Jens Stoltenberg.

Lelo Gifts Kyiv City Hall Ambulance

Leaders of Lelo for Georgia, during an official visit to Ukraine, gifted an ambulance to Kyiv City Hall.

According to their report, the leaders of Lelo made this decision based on the necessary needs of the Ukrainian people, because one of the main things that a country at war needs today is humanitarian aid.

According to Mamuka Khazaradze, chairman of Lelo, support for Ukraine will not be stopped.

"Today, Kyiv needed ambulances and the necessary equipment, so we gave this gift to our friends, on behalf of the Georgian people.

I promised Vitali [Klitschko] that our help will not stop as it has not stopped for the past year!

Glory to the heroes! We will win together!" Mamuka Khazaradze wrote.
