The new NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe Curtis Scaparotti intends to find out what weapons Ukraine requires for protection. He informed about this in NATO headquarters, reports UNIAN.
“I believe, we must support Ukraine with everything it requires for successful protection of its territories and sovereignty. I will consider it as new Supreme Allied Commander”, - Scaparotti noted.
Earlier, U.S. Army General Curtis Scaparrotti became the new NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe, taking over Phillip Breedlove. U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter took part in the ceremony in Stuttgart, officially delegating authority to Scaparrotti.
Previously, Scaparrotti, the-then candidate for the post of NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe, supported the idea to send Ukraine lethal weapons to fight pro-Kremlin militants in Donbas. According to him, it would be expedient to provide Ukraine’s Armed Forces with Javelins, U.S.-made anti-tank missile launchers.
