A hugely anticipated and extraordinary NATO Foreign Ministers meeting is happening today in Brussels with members poised to announce further military support to Ukraine. Western nations have renewed outrage at Putin’s actions in Ukraine after a slew of executed bodies were found in suspected mass graves in Bucha, on the outskirts of Kyiv. Ahead of the meeting, Ms Truss urged France and Germany to clamp down on Putin’s regime and issue new sanctions against Moscow. She said the only war to end the war was by “being tough.” She called for Western leaders to end Russian-controlled oil, coal and gas imports in Europe — something Germany is yet to promise. Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General, has pre-empted that further lethal and non-lethal support including anti-tank weapons and air defence systems will be heading to Ukraine. He said: “At a time when authoritarian powers are pushing back on the rules-based international order, it is even more important for democracies to stand together.”
