NATO fears that the Russia-Ukraine conflict might endure for years.


NATO has cautioned that Western countries must be prepared to continue helping Ukraine in a long-term conflict.

After a meeting with the military alliance's defence ministers on Sunday, June 19, Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg cautioned that the costs of war were high, but the cost of allowing Moscow to achieve its military ambitions in Ukraine was even higher.

Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, has also warned of a longer-term confrontation.

More armaments, according to Stoltenberg and Boris Johnson, would increase Ukraine's chances of winning.

"We must plan for the possibility that it will take years. We must not abandon our support for Ukraine "In an interview with the German tabloid Bild, the Nato head stated.

"Even if the expenses are significant, not only in terms of military support, but also in terms of growing energy and food expenditures."

According to the head of the Western military alliance, providing Ukraine with more modern weapons will improve its chances of liberating the country's eastern Donbas region, which is now under Russian control.

Boris Johnson, writing in the Sunday Times, accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of engaging in a "war of attrition" and "seeking to crush Ukraine down by pure cruelty."

He wrote, "I'm afraid we'll have to brace ourselves for a protracted conflict." "The most important factor is time. Everything hinges on Ukraine's ability to improve its defence capabilities faster than Russia's ability to renew its offensive capabilities."

On Friday, June 17, the prime minister visited Ukraine's capital, Kyiv, and stressed that supply of weaponry, equipment, ammunition, and training were needed to keep up with Moscow's rearmament operations.
