Pentagon: Coalition in support of Ukraine growing after first meeting in Ramstein

The coalition of countries in support of Ukraine ready to meet again next week at the level of defense ministers will be bigger than at the first meeting in Ramstein base in Germany.

“There are some countries that have shown an interest in participating that weren't in the first meeting,” Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said at a briefing on Friday.

He noted that the number of international partners ready to provide international support to Ukraine under U.S. coordination was not limited.

“But there's not a cap on it. We would love to have as many people; many, many countries participate as possible,” Kirby said.
