NATO military committee chief visits Ukraine for support

KYIV, 22 March: NATO Military Committee Chief Bob Bauer said that Ukraine’s allies should not take a pessimistic approach towards Russia’s defeat and continue providing necessary aid to Ukraine.

Bauer led the first official delegation representing NATO since February 2022 when Russia sent thousands of troops to Ukraine.

On the eve of a top NATO official’s visit, the Ukrainian military is on the back foot against Russia because Ukraine lacks supplies of arms, shells and other war-supporting munitions.

“Ukraine needs even more support. And you need it now. Time in Ukraine is not measured in days, weeks or months. It is measured in human lives. In allied nations a week is a week. In Ukraine, a week is a mother, a father, child, friend, lover, lost forever”, Bauer told the Ukrainian President.

Bauer praised Ukrainian morale and war plans during the war but pledged full support.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy wrote on the website that he informed the NATO Military Committee Chief about the Ukrainian military needs.

Zelenskiy said the two also discussed NATO’s support and coordination for Ukraine in the war.
