Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General called for more military support for Ukraine at the Economic World Forum held on Wednesday in Davos, Switzerland.

In his opening remarks, Secretary General stressed that NATO allies have provided significant support to Ukraine to resist Russian aggression, and called for the continuation of more military equipment and ammunition during these critical times.

“What happens around the negotiating table is totally dependent on the strength on the battlefield. For the Ukrainian army to prevail in this war, they need military strength,” Jens Stoltenberg said. He said in a tweet that we will continue our support to Ukraine for as long as it takes.

He further added that “it is a fight for democracy, and it is of paramount importance that President Putin should not win this war. If so, it will be a massive tragedy for Ukrainians and the rest of us.”

He also stressed that NATO member states and others should realize that authoritarian leaders such as Putin would use brutal force and violate international law to achieve their objectives. That will make us more vulnerable and the world less stable.

President Andrzej Duda of Poland, First Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister Yuliia Svyrydenko of Ukraine, Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland of Canada, and U.S. Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines were the other participant in the panel.

Meanwhile, the Secretary-General also met with the First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska; Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, and other senior officials.

The meeting comes as Russia has once more intensified missile strikes on eastern Ukrainian cities in the recent past, targeting Ukraine’s energy infrastructure and supply routes – as a result of which sores of civilian populations have been killed in injured in Ukraine.

This meeting has a strong message to President Putin that Ukraine will have the continued military support of NATO member states in the war. Therefore, the continuation of the war will be rather costly for Russia and Ukraine with no peace talks on the horizon as of now.
