As a conference of 50 nations gets underway in Brussels, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has said that strengthening Ukraine’s air defense systems would be a “high priority” topic of discussion.

In connection with the explosion that occurred on Saturday mostly on Kerch Bridge in Crimea, the Federal Security Service of Russia has detained eight individuals, including both Russians and Ukrainians.
According to statements made by Russian President Vladimir Putin, Moscow is prepared to begin supplying gas to Europe via Nord Stream 2 project.
It would take one year to repair the damaged Nord Stream pipeline, according to the chairman of Gazprom.
Who is in charge of what?
In the midst of Ukraine’s request for air defense systems from NATO leaders and Russia’s investigation into the explosion that occurred on the Crimean bridge, how does the situation now stand on the ground?
Al Jazeera maintains three maps, each of which is up to date on a daily basis, to follow the most recent events in ongoing conflicts.
The head of the Ukrainian military explains what he expects from NATO.
Oleksii Reznikov, the Defense Minister of Ukraine, engaged in a short conversation with a reporter as he was making his way to the NATO summit.
The journalist questioned, “What are your expectations of NATO at this time?”
The response he gave was “air defense systems.”
As he came for the conference in Brussels, the leader of NATO made some comments to the press about the escalation on the part of Russia as well as the air defenses of Ukraine.
“Since the beginning of the invasion back in February, we have witnessed the most significant escalation of the battle during the last few weeks. Russia is preparing to deploy huge numbers of soldiers. They are attempting to annex other territories of Ukraine in an unlawful manner. And we have witnessed the indiscriminate attacks on Ukrainian cities that have been carried out. But then, of course, there is also the fact that we have become aware of the hidden nuclear threats emanating from Moscow.
On air defense
“Although our allies have helped us with air defense, we still need considerably more. We need multiple kinds of air defense systems, ones with short ranges and ones with long ranges so that we can defend against diverse kinds of aerial threats, such as cruise missiles, ballistic missiles, and drones. Ukraine is, of course, a large nation with a significant number of cities. Therefore, in order to be able to assist Ukraine in defending even more towns and land against the horrendous assaults that Russia is launching on their civilian populations, we need to ramp up our efforts.
