Seoul to study list of Ukraine Army needs

The Ukrainian side handed South Korea a list of weapons it would like to receive and now Seoul will be reviewing it.

That’s according to South Korea President Yoon Seok-yeol, who spoke at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

"As for supporting Ukraine, last Tuesday Ukraine’s First Lady was in Korea, and I also had a meeting with President Zelensky. During the retreat, Russian troops planted lots of mines, they brought massive losses and destruction. We would like to help as soon as possible. Also today, President Zelensky provided a list regarding weapons, and we will review it," the South Korean leader said in response to a question of whether South Korea plans to provide any weapons to Ukraine in the future.

This includes demining equipment and ambulance vehicles. Yoon and Zelensky also agreed on the need for bilateral cooperation for the post-war recovery of Ukraine.
