Ukraine expects positive decisions on provision of defensive weapons – Poltorak

Ukraine expects positive decisions of different countries on the provision of defensive weapons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak wrote this on his Facebook page.

"Equipping the Armed Forces of Ukraine with modern weapons and military equipment is a key task of the defense reform. Support of foreign colleagues is very important for us. Since the beginning of the Russian aggression Ukraine has appealed to different countries around the world to provide the Ukrainian army with defensive weapons. Now we are waiting for the relevant decisions and we will positively accept this assistance," Poltorak said.

As reported, the United State is not yet in the process of considering the issue of providing defensive weapons to Ukraine, but at the same time Washington doesn't rule out the situation may change.
