“NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg participated in a virtual meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group on Wednesday (15 March 2023), chaired by U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley. The discussion focused on the importance of sustaining and increasing support to Ukraine as the country continues to resist Russia’s brutal war of aggression,” the report states.
In particular, the Secretary General updated the group on NATO and Allies’ efforts to swiftly provide Ukraine with key capabilities, including more air defence systems, more armour, and more ammunition.
