NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg warned that as "the war in Ukraine enters a decisive phase," this winter will be difficult for both the Ukrainian people and armed forces, as well as "those of us who support them."
Stoltenberg noted that the price paid by Europeans "is calculated in dollars, euros and pounds, while Ukrainians pay with their lives."
