NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg:
It is for the 30 NATO allies to decide when Ukraine is ready for membership. No one else has any right to try to meddle or to interfere in that process
430,000 children lives in war zone
The only person who needs a war with Ukraine is Putin. He hopes to boost his minimal popularity through another war. The world cannot afford aggressive authoritarian kleptocrats such as Putin. Sanction them out of power!
Despite recent developments intending to protect the rights of children affected by eastern Ukraine’s more than seven-year-long conflict, nearly half a million girls and boys continue to face grave risks to their physical health and psychological well-being.
It is unconscionable that children in eastern Ukraine continue to go to schools with bullet holes and bomb shelters and live in neighbourhoods that are intermittently shelled and littered with landmines
Putin wants to destabilize Ukraine
Thanks to Gry Almås and Morten Jentoft, both from NRK, who put this important topic on the agenda. There is much that can be said about the program, but there is no doubt: Putin wants to destroy as much as possible for a positive development for Ukraine and uses all means. What is happening within the borders of Ukraine is as much an internal matter as what is happening within the borders of Russia. Putin must be forced to the negotiating table and this must be done either through increased sanctions against the country or other methods.
The Russians are mobilizing heavily militarily along the border with Ukraine. The United States is sending warships to the Black Sea. NATO convenes an urgent meeting. Urix is in place at the front and gives you what you need to understand the game around Ukraine. The host is Gry Blekastad Almås.
