Following the ninth Ramstein format meeting, Ukraine’s partners pledged more air defence systems, tanks, artillery, and ammunition and more training for our military.
“Of course, not everything about Ramstein can be reported in public. Much of the agreements and discussions should be kept behind closed doors of the Contact Group. But I can say for sure that the basic trends remain unchanged. Ukraine and its partners are doing everything possible together to make the terrorist state lose. And to make it happen as soon as possible,” President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated.
He added that the Ukrainians and their international partners see now that the Kremlin is trying to squeeze all possible aggression potential out of Russia. They are in a hurry because they know that the world is still stronger but it takes time to accumulate its strength.
“Therefore, speed is very important. Speed in decision-making. In the implementation of decisions. In delivery. In training. Speed saves lives, speed brings back safety. And I thank all our partners who realise that speed is important. I thank all of our American friends for their leadership and systematic coordination of the Ramstein meetings, as well as for the personal participation of U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley in the meetings,” the President summed up.
