image for Stoltenberg says 'Ukraine will join NATO,' vows support despite Russia's 'reckless nuclear rhetoric'

Brussels – NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg vowed on April 3 that the alliance would continue supporting Ukraine despite Russia's "dangerous and reckless nuclear rhetoric.".

According to Stoltenberg, in the upcoming meeting, member nations will be discussing an "urgent need" to continue lethal and non-lethal support for Ukraine.

The two countries applied to join NATO a few months after their neighbor Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

"It is not for Moscow to decide who is going to be a member of NATO or not," Stoltenberg said.

In his latest series of nuclear threats against the West and Ukraine, Putin said Russia would deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus for training.

He added, "so far, we haven't seen any changes in their (Russians') nuclear posture that requires a change in our nuclear posture.".

"We will not be intimidated, and we will continue to support Ukraine," Stoltenberg said. »
