NATO’s Stoltenberg urges European Parliament to ‘stop complaining’ and support Ukraine

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg urged members of the European Parliament to “stop complaining and step up and provide support” to Ukraine.

“The price we pay as the European Union, as NATO is the price we can measure in currency, in money. The price they pay is measured in lives lost every day,” Stoltenberg said, adding “We should stop complaining and step up and provide support, full stop.”

Stoltenberg said that European Union member countries should aim to provide substantial support to Ukraine for a long time because “the price of not supporting them is much higher.”

“It is in our interest to help Ukraine because you have to understand that if Ukraine loses this that’s a danger for us,” he said.

“If you don’t care about the moral aspect of this, supporting the people of Ukraine, you should care about your own security interests,” he added.

“Pay for the support, pay for the humanitarian aid, pay the consequences of the economic sanctions, because the alternative is to pay a much higher price later on.”
