The North Atlantic Alliance will provide Ukraine with hundreds of portable anti-drone systems.
“NATO will provide a comprehensive package of assistance to Ukraine, including means of secure communications, fuel, medical supplies and protective vests, equipment against mines, chemical and biological threats, as well as hundreds of portable anti-drone systems.”
According to the Secretary-General, in the long term, NATO will help Ukraine to transit from Soviet-era equipment to modern equipment used by the Alliance. There is also a desire to improve operational interoperability, and further strengthen Ukraine’s defense and security institutions.
Stoltenberg emphasized that NATO leaders agreed at the summit in Madrid to significantly strengthen the defense and deterrence system in connection with Russia’s creation of a threat to world security.
It is about strengthening the first line of defense of the Alliance and improving battle groups in the eastern part of NATO. The number of rapid response forces will be increased to over 300,000 people.
