NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg arrived in the Ukrainian capital city of Kyiv on an unannounced visit and met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"Today we discussed Jens' initiative to create a special fund in the amount of 100 billion euros for financial support for Ukrainian defense for a period of five years," Zelenskyy said during his joint news conference with the NATO chief.

According to the president of Ukraine, Kyiv and NATO have reached the highest level of cooperation since the independence of Ukraine, but not the highest level.

Zelenskyy emphasized that Ukraine will be in NATO because it is no longer possible to imagine the security of Europe and the Euro-Atlantic community without Ukraine's effective participation.

"Russia seeks to make our state, our people, and our potential its springboard for further destabilization of the entire European and Euro-Atlantic area. And therefore, in defense of our state, there is a reliable and long-term answer to the question of general security," the Ukrainian president said.
