NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called on Germany and other allies to supply more weapons to Ukraine.

In his opinion, the military support of Kyiv is the fastest way to peace.

This was reported by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

"It may sound paradoxical, but military support for Ukraine is the fastest way to peace," Stoltenberg said.

According to him, the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, needed to be convinced that he would not achieve his goal of establishing control over Ukraine.

Then it would be possible to find a peaceful negotiated solution that would guarantee the survival of Ukraine as an independent democratic state.

At the same time, Stoltenberg also made it clear that he considers Ukrainian attacks on military facilities in Russia to be completely legal.

"Every country has the right to defend itself. Ukraine too," NATO Secretary General said.

When asked whether Ukraine should be given medium-range missiles, Stoltenberg replied that there is ongoing dialogue between the allies and Kyiv regarding specific systems.

Earlier, the former head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Linas Linkevičius, said that Lithuania should not in any way limit

aid to Ukraine,

which must liberate its territories from Russian invaders.
