NATO vows lasting support for Ukraine but won't promise membership

NATO nations will provide Ukraine urgently needed air-defense systems, President Biden said Tuesday, vowing aid to shield against deadly Russian attacks even as the alliance stops short of offering Kyiv concrete advances toward membership.

The U.S. leader, kicking off a summit marking the 75th anniversary of NATO, said the donation of five air-defense systems by Germany, Italy, Romania, the Netherlands and the United States represented just one element of NATO's ongoing campaign to help Kyiv hold off a far larger, better-armed adversary.

"Make no mistake; Russia is failing," Biden said. "The war will end with Ukraine remaining a free and independent country."
