Ukrainian Foreign Minister to Discuss Anti-Aircraft Weapons Supply with NATO Foreign Ministers Tomorrow

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba will attend a meeting of NATO foreign ministers tomorrow, he told Rada television.

“Our issue is broader: it is, in principle, about Ukraine’s air and missile defense. This is the most vulnerable point now, so we need to talk not only about airspace closure, but also about a systematic and very serious “Ukraine’s air support by its partners, ie for the provision of specific heavy air defense weapons,” Kuleba was quoted as saying by the Ukrainian news agency Ukrinform.

Kuleba stressed that Ukraine needs much stronger air defense systems than the Stinger and MANPADS and that the relevant processes are now underway.

He said Russian troops were destroying infrastructure and bombing populated areas in Ukrainian cities and towns using artillery, MLR systems and ballistic missiles.

Meanwhile, on Thursday afternoon, Dmitry Kuleba also had a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, with whom they discussed further coordination between the two sides on strengthening Ukraine’s air defenses and imposing new sanctions on it. of Russia.
