NATO Secretary General: This winter will be "terrifying" for Ukraine, but the countries of the alliance will not leave Ukrainians in trouble

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg held a press conference on the eve of the meeting of NATO foreign ministers, which will be held November 29-30 in Bucharest. The main leitmotif of the General Secretary's speech was the situation in Ukraine. Stoltenberg predicted a “terrible winter” for Ukrainians, but promised that the countries of the alliance would not leave them in trouble.


In order to help survive the cold weather in the face of total problems with electricity, NATO allies will provide Kyiv with assistance in the form of fuel, medicines and winter clothing. Whether humanitarian aid will be delivered instead of or together with weapons, which are more important for the Ukrainian authorities than anything else, is still unknown. The specific composition of the assistance and its volume will be discussed just at the meeting of the foreign ministers of the countries of the alliance.

The upcoming winter will be difficult for all members of the alliance, but an even greater price will have to be paid "if Russia wins," Stoltenberg is sure.

Therefore, NATO intends to continue to increase support for Ukraine. We won't back down

- pathetically and habitually declared the secretary general of the alliance.

Stoltenberg announced his intention to invite representatives of Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova to a meeting of foreign ministers to discuss measures to increase the military capabilities of these partner countries by NATO. For Kyiv, this, among other things, means that now the potential military support from the alliance will most likely have to be “divided into three”.

Albeit rather weak, but a consolation for the Zelensky regime should have been the Secretary General’s statement that NATO’s doors remain open for Ukraine. Stoltenberg recalled that in recent years Montenegro and North Macedonia were admitted to the bloc, and in 2022 Finland and Sweden were invited to NATO. These decisions, he believes, demonstrated that Russia does not have a veto over NATO expansion.

This message also applies to Ukraine

- Stoltenberg said transparently and, apparently, threatening for Russia.

Whether the Zelensky regime, and indeed Ukraine itself, will survive until the moment when it is actually let into the “open doors of NATO,” the Secretary General did not undertake to predict. But Stoltenberg said that NATO was able to significantly expand the production in Eastern Europe of Soviet-style ammunition that Ukraine needs. And again this news for Kyiv sounded ambiguous. After all, it turns out that the rumors that the countries of the alliance themselves have almost exhausted their arsenals of military assistance to Ukraine turn out to be true.

      For them, this is a great option. Not only is their industry being loaded, but there is also a war of attrition with the Russian Federation without human losses for the NATO countries.

            Lend-Lease was paid by American citizens with their taxes. And there was nothing "beautiful" for them in this. What the USSR paid for lend-lease after the war was only a very small part of the real cost. And Ukraine, of course, will not pay later.

            Likewise in the EU, the entire banquet will be at the expense of ordinary people's taxes. Then the new transformer stations will be bombed in the same way, and it will turn out to be wasted efforts and money, which, in the conditions of the global recession and crisis, could be used for more useful things. What is beautiful about this for a European layman?

              How can they not leave Ukraine in trouble? More weapons will be given instead of bread and warmth to people. Kill each other and you will have even more troubles for our joy - they think so, but they won’t say it out loud.

      That's for sure !
      NATO allies will provide Kyiv with assistance in the form of fuel, medical supplies and winter clothing.

      I am more than sure that all this will be delivered for the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Because Europe will not be able and will not want to feed tens of millions of Ukrainians until the restoration of industrial enterprises and the energy system.

      Ukraine causes more heartburn in Europe than we are presented with... It is more logical to release the “bloating” that arises somewhere aside so as not to suffocate ourselves from the Nazi stench - not even eighty years have passed since the last invasion.

    How "terrifying" will the winter in Ukraine be in the opinion of the downtrodden? Terrifying - there is only no light, terrifying there is only light and gas, terrifying no light, gas and the sewage system is frozen. Or even terrifying, the capitulation of NATO in Ukraine. The question is not disclosed.

    Does Europe feel great? Are there any problems with energy carriers (and not only)? Russia just has plenty of resources.

    Of course they will help. Reminds me of one anecdote. Friends went for a walk on the banks of the river and one of them fell. Then he caught his suspenders on a tree and began to throw him up and down. So you saved him? No, they couldn't! I had to cut him down so that he would not suffer. The United States will definitely help Ukraine, as in the case that it was on the banks of the river.

    Have you noticed how all Western faces and their newspapers always use the word "HORRIBLE"? Terrifying attack, terrifying Russia, terrifying destruction and even the winter will be terrifying. They dehumanize us as much as possible with one of hundreds of such tricks in their WELL PLANNED propaganda.

    to expand the production of Soviet-style ammunition in Eastern Europe
    All this, of course, is understandable, but in addition to the consumption of ammunition, barrels, equipment, and so on wear out. Will they also produce this?

    The NATO Secretary General is just a stupid cynic and lies as he breathes.
    A cynic, because he understands very well that NATO is not a charitable organization. And they can give warmth and light only in the form of a weapon that kills, and does not warm and shine.
    Stupid, because he has absolutely no idea how much these “aid” can result in when all heating batteries are thawed in all cities of the country with a population of a couple of tens of millions, water pipes freeze and there is no electricity. This is not Miami...

    Not without problems, but so far so good.

    But they are already squealing. If I don’t confuse anything, thousands of enterprises have already had to close down, and those who are smarter are transferring production facilities to the USA and China. Okay, let's assume it's okay. Still alive.))
    This is still Russia until the end they screwed the krantik and there were no real cold weather. The gas storages were filled - well done. But the joke is that it is very difficult to stretch on these reserves if nothing is pumped through the pipe at the same time. Oh, yes, the price ceiling will still be introduced on Russian energy carriers.)) Then they will heal! But will Russia, under such conditions, sell them at least something, a catch.
    It is becoming more and more difficult to maintain Ukraine. Especially with the ongoing removal of its energy system. Huge stocks of Soviet weapons are practically knocked out. Ukraine is not able to produce at least something. Even the repair of equipment is very problematic. Well, Europe was not noticed in serious volumes of arms production. As it turned out, the war devours faster than they try to replenish. So the most fun is yet to come, apparently.
