NATO nations must boost support to Ukraine and take a firm stance with Russia as "a very difficult winter" looms for the government in Kyiv, parliamentarians and experts warned Sunday at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly's Annual Session.

In a draft resolution adopted by the assembly's Committee on the Civil Dimension of Security, allied governments were urged to consider fresh political, economic, material and technical backing to help Ukraine protect its territory and build a strong and accountable state.

The resolution, which is expected to be adopted by a full plenary session in The Hague on Monday, calls for continued sanctions against Russia until it abides by international law and helps wind back all illegal territorial gains.

NATO should take a tough line, confirming that it will never recognize Russia's annexation of Crimea and, the text said, that the "Alliance's door would remain open for further enlargement."
