WAR €100 billion from NATO is not enough: Lithuania insists on more funding for Ukraine.

As NATO members discuss the creation of a five-year, €100 billion fund to support Ukraine, Lithuania maintains that these efforts could also include bilateral assistance, the Lithuanian ambassador to the Alliance said.

“€100 billion for five years is still not very much. We should think about a larger amount and perhaps include what we provide to Ukraine on a bilateral basis. I hope that we will move to concrete decisions that will be more binding,” the diplomat said.

According to him, discussions on specific funding rules include setting a certain percentage of the country’s GDP, because funding is currently very uneven.

In this context, it is noteworthy that the Czech Republic is asking other countries to allocate more money for the purchase of shells for Ukraine. Prague itself will allocate tens of millions of euros for its initiative. Almost 18 countries have joined the program led by the Czech Republic. So far, Germany has promised to make the largest contribution – €576 million.
