Ukraine expects to receive lethal weapons from partner countries – Poltorak

Ukraine expects to receive lethal weapons from its partner countries. At the moment, only Lithuania has provided such assistance to the state.

Ukrainian Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak stated this during a briefing on August 23, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Since the first day of the aggression of the Russian Federation we have appealed to all countries of the world regarding the provision of lethal weapons to us. Only Lithuania has given us such assistance. We are ready to receive lethal weapons, but this requires a decision made by the partner countries," Poltorak said.

As Ukrinform reported, in 2016 Ukraine received from Lithuania 146 units of lethal weapons developed and produced by the former USSR.
