More weapons to try to defeat and push back Russia. In a meeting at the Pentagon with US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmyhal thanked the American people for their continued support of Ukraine, stressing that “we will win this war”. “But to achieve this victory faster and with fewer casualties – as the Prime Minister emphasized at the time – Ukraine still needs significant military support. More air defense systems that reduce the impact of Russian air strikes, more heavy artillery, mortars and ammunition. We also ask you to reconsider the possibility of supplying Ukraine with long-range missiles.

The Prime Minister of Ukraine said that Ukraine needs more heavy equipment, but also aircraft. He thanked Austin for the Abrams tanks that the United States will supply to Ukraine, as well as the Bradley and Stryker infantry fighting vehicles. He later noted that “in modern warfare, air superiority is crucial.” “That is why Ukraine has begun to build a new alliance of combat aircraft and calls on the United States to become the most important country in this alliance. America can once again show its leadership by supplying Ukraine with F-15 or F-16 fighters »Schmyhal commented at the summit with Joe Biden’s men.
