NATO-Ukraine Commission holds meeting over Kakhovka HPP blast, agrees on immediate support

Today, the NATO-Ukraine Commission held a meeting with online participation of Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba, which was convened at the initiative of the Ukrainian side to consider the situation that arose after the Kakhovka HPP dam destruction by the Russian occupiers.

The relevant information was published on the website of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Ukrinform reports.

“Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg chaired a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission on Thursday (8 June 2023), bringing together Allied ambassadors with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba. Participating virtually, Minister Kuleba briefed Allies on the destruction of the Nova Kakhovka dam in southern Ukraine, outlining the devastation it has caused,” the report says.

At the meeting, Stoltenberg said that the consequences for thousands of people and for the environment are dramatic, and he urged Allies to provide support expeditiously. Allies expressed strong solidarity with Ukraine, and many are already providing critical aid, including water filters, pumps, generators, and shelter equipment.

It is noted that NATO’s Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre, the Alliance’s civil emergency response mechanism, has shared a detailed list of Ukraine’s most urgent needs with NATO Allies and partners. 

“The Secretary General stressed the importance of immediate, medium and long-term support to Ukraine, saying that this will be a key topic for next week’s meetings of NATO Defence Ministers and the Ukraine Defence Contact Group, as well as the Vilnius Summit in July,” the report says.
