Ukraine-NATO Council will hold emergency meeting due to Russian shelling: Ukrainian air defense reinforcement to be discussed
Following the massive missile and drone attacks by the aggressor country of the Russian Federation, which led to serious destruction and deaths of civilians, an emergency meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Council will be held. The North Atlantic Alliance supported the relevant request of our country.
This was announced by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba on his page on the social network X. This meeting will be a response to the terror of the Russian invaders.
Ukraine will discuss with its partners how to strengthen our air defense. This will be one of the key topics during the meeting. The Foreign Minister did not specify when exactly it will take place.
"It is an important signal of Euro-Atlantic unity amid the escalation of Russian terror," Kuleba said.
The NATO-Ukraine Council is a joint body in which Allies and Ukraine meet on a basis of equality to advance political dialogue, interaction, cooperation and Ukraine's aspirations for NATO membership. The NATO-Ukraine Council also serves as a mechanism for crisis consultations between our country and the Alliance.

- On the morning of January 2, Ukrainian soldiers repelled the world's largest combined attack, during which the enemy used UAVs, cruise, ballistic and hypersonic missiles. No country in the world has ever fought with such weapons.
- The latest Russian strikes in Ukraine have shown a change in Russia's tactics in attacks on Ukrainian regions, British intelligence noted. The strikes of considerable intensity were not aimed at the energy sector, as they were last winter, but primarily at Ukraine's military industry.
