ISLAMABAD, June 20 ( Alliance News): NATO chief Jane Stoltenberg has warned that the Ukrainian war with Russia may continue for many years.
Jeans Stoltenberg’s statement comes at a time when Russia intensified attacks on Ukraine after the European Commission proposes to give Ukraine a European Union candidate.
“We must prepare for the fact that this war can take years, we should not withdraw in support of Ukraine,” he said.
“Even if the costs are high, we have to keep full preparations not only for military aid but also in view of the rising energy and food prices,” he said.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who visited Kyiv this week, also spoke about the need for preparation for a long war.
Boris Johnson wrote in the Sunday Times in London, “This means that Ukraine is getting weapons, equipment, ammunition and training faster than the invader.”
“Time is an important factor, everything will depend on whether Ukraine can strengthen its ability to defend its territory faster than Russia’s ability to attack,” he wrote.
Ukraine received a significant reinforcement on Friday when the European Commission recommended it to be a European candidate, which is expected by EU countries at the summit this week.
This will lead to Ukraine, Russia, on the path to fulfilling its desire before the February 24 invasion, even if it takes many years in membership.
Intensity in attacks
Russian attacks on Ukraine, on the other hand, have intensified, the Ukrainian army said, the industrial city of Seawordontaksk once again suffered heavy shelling and rocket fires.
