NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg confirmed the deal ahead of NATO’s three-day summit in Washington that begins Tuesday. This comes as Russia continues to attack Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, leaving more than 100,000 without power. Earlier today, Russian strikes killed 29, including two people who died in an attack on a children’s hospital in Kyiv.
