On the second anniversary of Russia’s attack on Ukraine, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg confirmed the country’s entry into the alliance. “Ukraine will join NATO. The question is not if, but when,” the Norwegian said in a video message on Saturday.

“As we prepare for this day, NATO will continue to support Ukraine,” Stoltenberg said. The goal of the head of the Kremlin Vladimir Putinthe governance of Ukraine has not changed.
