NATO Secretary General: Delay of U.S. Aid Had Real Consequences in Ukraine

In an interview with MSNBC, when asked whether the U.S. aid is going to arrive in time to make a difference, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said: “It’s not too late, but the delay has had real consequences. The Ukrainians have now for months been outgunned, roughly one to 5, one to 10, depending on what part of the front line you are talking about.”

Stoltenberg added that Ukraine was forced to ration its ammunition, which led to fewer drones and missiles being shut down simply because of the lack of air defense systems and ammunition. But Ukrainians had demonstrated enormous skill in defending their country since the beginning of the full-scale invasion.

“At the beginning of this war, most experts believed that Russia was going to take Kyiv within days, and Ukraine within weeks, that hasn’t happened. Ukraine has liberated 50% of the land that Russia occupied in the beginning. They are able to shoot down Russian missiles, conduct deep strikes, and also open a corridor in the black sea,” Stoltenberg said.

NATO Secretary General added that Ukraine will prevail if provided with weapons.

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill on April 20, providing almost $61 billion of assistance to Ukraine. The bill must now be passed by the Senate and signed by President Joe Biden.
