Authorities assure Ukraine sees qualitatively new stage in receiving defense aid

(MENAFN- UkrinForm) Defense aid supplies to Ukraine on the part of international partners have reached a new level.

This was stated by the Deputy Head of the Presidential Office, Andriy Sybiha , at a briefing on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

'In general, if we talk about defense support, now we have reached the stage where we can talk about a new quality, a new stage of weapon deliveries and assistance to Ukraine. The world is with us, the world is helping us. Indeed, we would like this to be a swifter process, and we speak openly about it to our partners, but this assistance is coming and it certainly makes our capabilities much stronger,' he said.

Sybiha recalled that the Prime Ministers of Spain and Denmark visited Ukraine on Thursday where they met with President Volodymyr Zelensky.
