NATO countries must immediately provide Ukraine with artillery – Truss

NATO countries have agreed to continue to support Ukraine to help it contain Russia.

UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said this in Berlin on Sunday, Ukrinform reports, citing the BBC.

“Putin must face a sustained defeat in Ukraine….Allies must support Ukraine’s move to NATO-standard equipment, immediately providing artillery, training and the required expertise,” she said.

She also noted that NATO must maintain its “open door” policy towards admitting new members.

“NATO’s open door policy is essential and if Finland and Sweden decide to apply to join, it is clear that they would strengthen the alliance and European security as a whole,” Truss said.
