A military aid provided to Ukraine has exhausted NATO’s own reserves, so it is necessary to step up production, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in an interview with German broadcaster Deutsche Welle on Oct. 27.

According to Stoltenberg, NATO will not be able to provide military aid to Ukraine at some stage if the production is not increased.

Therefore, NATO is currently working directly with industry to replenish stocks of ammunition and equipment, he said.

After that, NATO will be able to maintain an adequate level of its own deterrence and defense and at the same time continue to provide support to Ukraine, Stoltenberg added.
