NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced that the defense ministers of the Alliance did not agree on a plan to fund Ukraine with an annual aid package of €40 billion. This was reported by European Pravda with reference to Stoltenberg's statement.

According to him, the allies will continue to work on aligning their positions on this issue until the summit in Washington. "We still need to finalize our positions on the volume of long-term financial assistance and on Ukraine's membership before the summit in Washington", - Stoltenberg said.

Earlier, media reports indicated that Stoltenberg was abandoning plans to create a five-year military aid fund for Ukraine after facing resistance from Alliance members. Instead, the NATO Secretary General presented a new proposal, according to which Alliance members would commit to spending at least 40 billion euros per year on both lethal and non-lethal assistance for Ukraine.
