A NATO summit in Madrid later this month is expected to agree on an assistance package for Ukraine that will help the country with the move from old Soviet-era weaponry to NATO standard gear, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Wednesday.

"It is very much about enabling the Ukrainians to transition from Soviet-era, from old equipment to more modern NATO-standard equipment," he told reporters ahead of a meeting of the alliance's defense ministers in Brussels.
