NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the war between Russia and Ukraine will not end anytime soon.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that Russian President Vladimir Putin “does not intend to bring peace to Ukraine anytime soon” and that the West should be ready to help Kyiv “for the long term.”

Declaring that Russia is waging a “war of attrition” in Ukraine, Stoltenberg demanded that at a summit to be held this summer in Vilnius, all NATO countries pledge to use at least 2 percent of their gross domestic product for defense.

Speaking to The Guardian, Stoltenberg said that the ongoing conflict in the Ukrainian city of Buckmouth “shows that Russia is ready to sacrifice thousands and thousands of soldiers for even the smallest success.”

“Putin is not planning for peace, he is more planning for war,” the NATO Secretary General said, noting that Moscow is increasingly falling in love with the military industry and seeking weapons from authoritarian regimes such as Iran and North Korea.

For this reason, Stolrenberg said that the West should be ready to supply Ukraine with weapons for a long time. “We will have to continue to support them, because the goal of Russia is to wear out Ukraine. “The question is to have the industrial capacity to withstand the war,” he said.
