“Like all previous armed conflicts, Russia’s war against Ukraine is likely to end at the negotiating table. The only question is when and under what circumstances,” said NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

“Our goal is to help Ukraine achieve such a result in the negotiations on the battlefield, which create favourable conditions for the Kyiv side. In other words, we are talking about a choice: either we help Ukraine win the war, or we support the talks. The point is that Ukraine is strong enough to achieve acceptable conditions in the war for peace talks.
