NATO pledges ‘billions’ in 2024 arms for Ukraine

According to a statement released after a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Council held in Brussels, NATO countries will continue providing Kyiv with military, economic, and humanitarian aid in 2024.

The statement comes amid debates within Western countries regarding further support for Ukraine as it confronts Russian aggression.

“Today, Allies made clear that they will continue to provide Ukraine with major military, economic, and humanitarian assistance, and many Allies outlined plans to provide billions of euros of further capabilities in 2024,” the statement reads.

The meeting was held at the ambassadorial level, convened at Kyiv’s request following the shelling of Ukraine during the New Year holidays. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg chaired the session. NATO ambassadors and invitee Sweden were briefed via videoconference by Lieutenant General Mykola Oleshchuk, Commander of the Ukrainian Air Force, and Deputy Interior Minister Oleksii Serhieiev.

The head of Ukraine’s mission to NATO, Natalia Galibarenko, stated all NATO member countries have confirmed without exception that they will continue supporting Kyiv.

“Everyone understands that this war will be long. Therefore, there is an understanding that assistance should continue without interruption,”  said Galibarenko.

Earlier, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba expressed hope that allies would quickly announce new commitments to strengthen Ukraine’s air defenses after the NATO-Ukraine Council meeting.

The NATO-Ukraine Council was established at the NATO Summit in July 2023 to serve as a forum for joint consultations, decision-making, and activities between NATO and Ukraine.
