NATO to Share Radar Data with Ukraine, Georgia

NATO has decided to share air traffic radar data with Ukraine and Georgia besides agreeing to lend continued support for existing aid packages to the countries.

"The package we agreed for Georgia and Ukraine, it’s about exercises, it’s about access to more NATO educational programmes. It’s also about sharing a radar picture that can improve the understanding of the activities in the air in the region," NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said during a press a conference following a ministerial meeting on April 2.

The Alliance will also actively involve Ukraine and Georgia in its exercises in the Black Sea region. "We decided to deepen our partnerships with Ukraine and Georgia even further. Including with exercises in the strategic Black Sea region. As well as joint work to counter hybrid warfare," Stoltenberg said.

"Hybrid warfare" toolkit generally involves non-violent techniques such as spreading fake news or pushing manipulated narratives.
