Today, Wednesday, the war in Ukraine will be the focus of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit.
More than 40 heads of state and government are meeting in Madrid, the capital city of Spain, to discuss the future of the alliance, which Sweden and Finland will be able to join after the Turkish green light, AFP reported.
Opening the long-scheduled summit meeting, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said the planned meeting in the Spanish capital was of pivotal importance to member states.
On the other hand, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has been invited to participate in the discussions and will make two video interventions, while Kyiv continues to ask its partners to provide it with weapons.
On Tuesday, Stoltenberg said that NATO countries, which had previously given Kyiv billions of dollars in aid, would agree in Madrid on “a complete assistance program for Ukraine to help it realize its right to legitimate self-defense.”
