Ukraine: NATO recommits to support as war shows no sign of slowing

As war rages on in Ukraine, NATO defence ministers have gathered in Brussels to discuss current and future support.

A bolstering of missile capability has already been pledged by the US, UK and Germany, while the leaders of France, Germany and Italy have now visited the country.

The meeting in Brussels reiterated the alliances unified commitment to Ukraine, support for which cannot come soon enough as forces battle to keep Russia from taking control of their country's industrial east following more than three months of war.

Discussions between alliance ministers will lay the foundations for the alliance's Madrid summit at the end of the month, with membership applications from Finland and Sweden still up for consideration.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said: "I was delighted to meet again with my NATO colleagues. The most successful military alliance is more united than ever and determined to stand up for each other."
