Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “NATO Secretary-General: ‘Ukraine Can Win This War'” – below is their description.

Finland’s government announced on Sunday its intention to join NATO, while Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg expressed hope that Ukraine could win the war as Russian military advances appear to be faltering.

The Finnish Parliament is expected to endorse the decision in coming days.

A formal membership application will then be submitted to NATO headquarters in Brussels, most likely at some point next week.

The announcement came as top diplomats from the 30 NATO member states met in Berlin to discuss providing further support to Ukraine and moves by Finland, Sweden and others to join NATO in the face of threats from Russia.

“Russia’s war in Ukraine is not going as Moscow had planned,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said, speaking by video as he recovers from a COVID-19 infection.

“Ukraine can win this war,” he said, adding that NATO must continue to step up its military support to the country.

“Sweden and Finland, if you are ready, we are ready,” Germany’s Foreign Minister, Annalena Baerbock, said.

Sweden has also already taken steps toward joining the alliance, while Georgia’s bid is again being discussed despite dire warnings from Moscow about the consequences if its neighbor becomes part of NATO.

Stoltenberg said he was confident the accession process for Finland and Sweden could be expedited, despite concerns from Turkey over Sweden and Finland’s alleged support for Kurdish rebels.

In the meantime, the alliance would increase its presence in the Baltic region to deter Russian threats, he said.
