NATO members are still discussing Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg’s proposal and mechanisms for distributing contributions.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg proposed creating a five-year, $100 billion fund for Ukraine to encourage the Alliance to provide weapons to Kyiv. Bloomberg reported this, citing sources.

According to the interlocutor of the agency, NATO members are still discussing Stoltenberg’s proposal and the mechanisms for the distribution of contributions, in particular, whether bilateral aid to Ukraine should be considered in the total amount.

Sources suggest the proposal is likely to change before the allies reach an agreement.

As part of the package, NATO may also take over the operational responsibilities of the US-led Ukraine Defense Contact Group (Ramstein format – edit.), which coordinates the supply of arms to Kyiv, sources said.

Led by NATO’s supreme commander, General Chris Cavoli, such a move could insulate the entity from any political changes that may occur after the US election.

We remind you that the previous day, President Vladimir Zelensky held a special meeting on cooperation with NATO. This concerns the summit in Washington and many other aspects of the engagement.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the United States plans to discuss the development of a “road map” for Ukraine’s accession to NATO at the Alliance summit, scheduled for July 9-11 in Washington.
