Policy: – It is not too late for Ukraine to win. Ukraine’s freedom cannot, must not and will not die, says NATO’s top military commander, US Admiral Rob Bauer.

On Thursday, NATO’s 32 defense chiefs will meet in Brussels, among them Norway’s Eirik Kristoffersen.

On the way into the meeting, Bauer also repeated NATO chief Jens Stolteberg’s previous call to send weapons that are in stock to Ukraine, regardless of possible violations of NATO’s requirements for capabilities.

– Stores can and will be filled up again. But human lives that are lost are lost forever, says Bauer, who points out that the war has now lasted 813 days.

The plans imply that forces must be ready, capacity must be built up and developed, and a new command structure must be in place.

In the future, there will be more joint exercises so that everything fits, warns Bauer.

Ukraine is once again at the top of the agenda. Among other things, the defense chiefs are to have a separate meeting with Ukraine’s military leadership to discuss more support.

At the meeting, the defense chiefs will also agree on how NATO’s new defense plans will be put into practice.
