Ukraine FM: We need more weapons

The success of a counter-offensive against Russia shows Ukraine can beat Moscow’s forces but Kiev needs more weapons from its partners, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has said.

Moscow abandoned its main bastion in northeastern Ukraine in a sudden collapse of one of the war’s principal front lines after Ukrainian forces made a rapid advance.

Kuleba, speaking at a news conference with visiting German counterpart Annalena Baerbock, said some allies had initially been hesitant to send weapons, citing the risk of antagonising Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Now, thank God, we are no longer hearing this argument … we have demonstrated we are capable of defeating the Russian army. We are doing that with weapons given to us,” he said. “And so I reiterate: the more weapons we receive, the faster we will win, and the faster this war will end.”
