Nato chief accuses putin of 'weaponizing winter' against ukraine

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “NATO Chief Accuses Putin of ‘Weaponizing Winter’ Against Ukraine” – below is their description.

NATO’s Secretary-General accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of trying to “weaponize winter” by forcing the Ukrainians to “freeze or flee” and dividing the alliance.

But he said the meeting in Bucharest was sending a “strong message of NATO unity and sustained support” for Ukraine.

NATO foreign ministers met in Romania to drum up support for Ukraine as Russia bombards energy infrastructure ahead of the frigid winter.

Many of NATO’s 30 allies believe the focus now must solely be on defeating Russia.

Stoltenberg said allies made additional pledges of financial support for Kiev.

“This will fund urgent nonlethal support, including fuel and generators, helping Ukraine to address the consequences of Russia’s strikes against their power grid,” said Stoltenberg.

Beyond Ukraine’s immediate needs, NATO wants to see how it can help the country longer-term, by upgrading its Soviet-era equipment to the alliance’s modern standards and providing more military training.
