Speaking at the start of a two-day meeting of NATO Defence Ministers on Tuesday (14 February 2023), Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said there are no signs that President Putin is preparing for peace, stressing the urgency of delivering military capabilities to Ukraine quickly so that it can continue to defend itself.

He added that Allies will also take steps to replenish Allied munitions stocks, and address ways to better protect critical undersea infrastructure. “Allies will also start to discuss the new defence investment pledge to ensure we continue to invest more in defence”, Mr Stoltenberg said.
