Ukraine has been of great assistance to the NATO thanks to its aircraft that perform strategic flights for the Alliance member countries, as the pandemic of Covid-19 coronavirus carries on. Jens Stoltenberg, the Alliance's Secretary General said so during the press conference as quoted by the press centre of Ukraine's Armed Forces HQ.
"Ukrainian planes show how NATO cooperates with its partner country, Ukraine, so as to conduct air transportations for NATO allies. These aircraft have been crucial for a while in terms of shipping medical equipment from China around the world to NATO member countries in Europe", Stoltenberg said, commenting on the involvement of Ukrainian airplanes for flights during the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to him, NATO welcomes close cooperation with Ukraine and considers opportunities to boost it.
On Wednesday, April 15, Defense Ministers of NATO member countries are supposed to go for a session focusing on the topic of crisis caused by the pandemic of coronavirus.
