Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - International Service: Jens Stoltenberg, the Secretary General of NATO, has called for the continuation of the support of Western allies to Ukraine as "hard winter" arrives for the country's army in the war against Russia.
Stoltberg admitted that Ukraine's summer counteroffensive was not successful in its goals. He described Russia's failure to seize more land as a "strategic failure" for Vladimir Putin.
"Wars proceed in stages," Stoltberg said. We must support Ukraine in good times and bad. "We must be ready to hear bad news."
In an interview with the German channel ARD, NATO Secretary General said that Putin's victory in the war would be a "tragedy" for Ukraine and dangerous for the alliance.
