UK: PM to meet Dutch,Nordic and Baltic leaders to talk on Russia-Ukraine war


British Prime Minister Boris Johnson organized a meeting in the Netherlands between Dutch Defence Minister Kajsa Ollongren, Nordic and Baltic leaders.

The summit will bring together members of the Joint Operations Forces (JEF), a Northern European security alliance, to discuss European security and military support to Ukraine.


The Netherlands is a member of the U.K.-led coalition alongside Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden and Norway.

According to a press release from the U.K. government, some of the countries involved have recently faced aggression from Russia along their land borders or through cyber attacks.

The meeting will therefore address the war in Ukraine and longer-term security concerns and ways to help Ukraine rebuild after the war.

According to the release, Johnson will also urge nations to come together and ensure other countries remain safe from Russian aggression.

“Ensuring we are resilient to Putin’s threats needs to go beyond our military footing –– together alongside our North and Baltic Sea partners, we must ensure we are insulated from Russia’s interference and impact on our energy supplies, economy and values,” Johnson said in the release.

The meeting will come after a significant NATO deployment to Norway on Monday, called Exercise Cold Response. Over 30,000 troops from 27 countries will take part in the exercise.
