Wallace reportedly said that “whether we like it or not, people want to see a little gratitude” from Ukraine at the NATO summit in Vilnius, Lithuania, this week.
Wallace noted that Ukraine and its allies needed to “persuade doubting politicians” that helping Ukraine in its conflict with Russia was “helpful” as well as “persuade countries to give up their own stockpiles” of weapons and ammunition.
Referring to online retailer Amazon.com, Wallace reportedly said, “I told them last year when I drove 11 hours to get a listing that I’m not like Amazon.”

Jake Sullivan, the US national security adviser, also said at the summit that the US and NATO deserve “gratitude” for their support for Ukraine.
He added that “the American people deserve a measure of gratitude”, as do “all of the allied partners who support them”, and that “the United States of America has stepped up to help ensure that the brave Ukrainian soldiers have ammunition, air defense, infantry fighting vehicles, mine clearance equipment, and so many other things to be able to effectively defend against Russian onslaught and reclaim territory as well . »
Volodymyr Zelensky, the President of Ukraine, spoke after Wallace and Sullivan made their remarks, saying in doing so: “I am grateful to all the leaders of the NATO countries for their very practical and unprecedented support “.
