NATO summit: Scholz promises further aid to Ukraine

At the start of the summit in Washington, NATO promised Ukraine more air defense systems. Even more help could follow.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) has described the support provided to Ukraine with air defense systems as a “big step”. At the same time, he promised the country attacked by Russia further systems on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Washington. “In my view, this process is not complete,” said Scholz before a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Selenskyj.

The USA, Germany and other allies promised Ukraine further support to defend against Russian air attacks on Tuesday at the start of the NATO summit. Ukraine had already requested seven additional Patriot systems in April, Germany has already delivered three of them and is counting on other NATO countries to follow suit. “Germany has taken a big step in encouraging this and convincing others that this is necessary,” said Scholz.
