Congratulations NATO! What would you like for your birthday? One hundred billion Euros you say? To give to Ukraine?!

Well, that’s what NATO’s Jens Stoltenberg was outlining at this week’s 75th birthday bash in Brussels. The secretary general’s plan is to give certainty to Ukraine that it will receive military funding for five years as it seeks to defend itself against the renewed Russian assault which will come this summer. NATO would also take responsibility in coordinating weapons deliveries to Ukraine.

The idea is good, its chances of being approved less so.
