Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that Kiev and its partners are working together to end Russia’s war on Ukraine “as soon as possible.”
“Today is another Ramstein, a gathering of the military support group for Ukraine… “We have regular firm decisions on preserving our country and strengthening our fighters,” Zelenskyy said late Tuesday in a televised address.
He stated that Ukraine’s partners confirmed more air defense systems, tanks, artillery, and military training for the country.
On Tuesday, the Ukraine Defense Contact Group, an alliance of 54 countries backing Ukraine’s defense in response to Russia’s “special military operation,” met in Brussels.
The group’s chairman, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin, stated that the allies “have stated unequivocally that we will continue to assist Ukraine’s self-defense. And we will leave with the urgency that the situation requires.”
