The fighting and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine will worsen in the coming days, NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg warns.

“We see that an increasing number of civilians are killed… and the meaningless destruction of Russian forces. The people of Ukraine are resisting with courage and determination, but in the next few days, the misery will probably get even worse,” Stoltenberg said in an interview with the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

He called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to end the war, withdraw all forces, and engage in diplomacy. Stoltenberg also rejected Russia’s claims that the United States had secret laboratories for the development of biological weapons in Ukraine.

“Now that these false accusations have been made, we must be vigilant because Russia itself may plan to use chemical weapons based on this pile of lies,” Stoltenberg said.

According to the NATO chief, it is still completely inappropriate to impose a no-fly zone over Ukraine as it could lead to direct confrontations between Russia and NATO.

“NATO is a defense alliance. We are not looking for war with Russia,” he said.

  1. Obviously, unless Ukraine and the West come to our senses and give the Russians the written and signed security treaty they need and we owe them after breaking our previous verbal security promises to them and then our Budapest peace agreement breaking Kiev coup.
    Why isn’t Jens, being from Peace Prize Norway, urging the Ukrainians to give the Russians a fair treaty, to stop this tragedy and avoid a very nuclear, looming World War 3 for which our families have been completely unprepared?
