Ukraine hints at a deal with the United States on anti-missile defence systems

Saturday, 26 March 2022

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has hinted at an agreement on "concrete steps" to reduce the number of Russian missiles hitting facilities in Ukraine.

This was announced by Minister Dmytro Kuleba after talks with the US delegation led by President Biden, in Warsaw.

Kuleba did not specify the details, but quite clearly hinted at the prospect of obtaining additional weapons capable of shooting down missiles.

He posted on his account a photo of Defense Minister Alexei Reznikov handing over to US President Joe Biden and other members of the US delegation "the wreckage of one of the Russian missiles that fired at the International Center for Peacekeeping and Security, better known as the Yavoriv Military Range."

"Today, in developing contacts between Presidents Zelensky and Biden, we agreed on the next steps to ensure that fewer such missiles fall on Ukrainian soil. And, of course, for Ukraine to win," the Minister said.

He did not specify any other details. Ukrainian authorities reduced the number of reports of new arms supplies, so as not to harm the agreements reached.

As reported earlier, the Ukrainian Defense and Foreign Ministers Oleksiy Reznikov and Dmytro Kuleba visited Warsaw on Saturday for talks with their US counterparts. Biden personally joined the meeting.

During the meeting, Biden promised to achieve Ukraine's victory in the war with Russia.

Europravda has earlier reported that at the NATO summit in Brussels, Biden also assured his colleagues of his confidence in Ukraine's victory, but there was a lack of understanding of the strategy for action in some scenarios.
