"Ukraine needs planes, anti-ship missiles, armored personnel carriers, and heavy air defense systems", said Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba at a briefing with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in Brussels on Thursday.
He stressed that in recent weeks the Ukrainian army and the entire Ukrainian nation have shown that they know how to fight and how to win.
"But without a stable and sufficient supply of all the weapons requested by Ukraine, this victory will be accompanied by enormous sacrifices. The more weapons we receive and the sooner it arrives in Ukraine, the more lives will be saved and the more cities and villages will not be destroyed." "Bucha will not happen again. This is my message to the allies, it is very simple," Kuleba said.
He called on all allies to put aside their doubts, unwillingness to provide Ukraine with everything it needs, because today weapons serve the purposes of peace.
"My agenda is very simple, it has only three topics: weapons, weapons and weapons. We are convinced that the best way to help Ukraine now is to give it everything it needs to restrain Putin and defeat the Russian army in Ukraine so that the war does not spread further ", - the minister emphasized.
At the same time, Kuleba noted that there should be no difference between defensive and offensive weapons, because any weapon used in Ukraine by the Ukrainian army against a foreign aggressor is defensive by definition.
"Therefore, this difference between defensive and offensive does not make sense about the situation in my country. And those countries that say they will provide Ukraine with defensive weapons, but can not provide offensive weapons, are hypocritical, it's just dishonest and unjustified approach," Kuleba said.
