After Ramstein meeting, all partners better understand what weapons Ukraine needs - Markarova

The meeting of the defense agencies and chiefs of staff of several dozen nations in Ramstein, Germany, united the efforts of individual partners in support of Ukraine and created a stronger mechanism for cooperation in defense issues.

Oksana Markarova, the Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States, spoke of this on Thursday in response to a question from Ukrinform's own correspondent.

"The historic meeting in Ramstein, organized by the United States, bringing together about 40 ministers and commanders of the armed forces – our friends, partners, and allies – has allowed turning bilateral coordination into a permanent coordination group," said Markarova.

According to her, this has contributed to ensuring that all partners now "absolutely clearly understand and know" what kind of weapons the Armed Forces need. Thus, this coordination group is focused on the main task – to find and deliver these weapons to Ukraine as soon as possible.
