A defense conference on securing Ukraine’s long-term security is now underway at the US airbase in Ramstein, Germany. US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has invited around 40 countries to the conference. While many NATO members will be present, a number of the countries invited are not NATO member states. The attendees will include NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht. The meeting seeks to boost weapons deliveries to Ukraine and bolster the country’s long-term security. Austin and US Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Sunday and pledged additional military assistance to Kyiv. Austin and Blinken are expected to brief allies on Ukraine’s security needs during the conference.
