Zelenskyy: Extra defense support shows quicker end to conflict

(MENAFN) Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has declared that rising defense support to Kyiv will ensure an instant end to the conflict with Russia.

“The more defense supports our heroes at the front receive from the world, the sooner Russia's aggression will end and the more reliable the security guarantees for Ukraine and all our partners will be after the war,” Zelenskyy announced in a video speech late Wednesday.

Zelenskyy stated he talked with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg throughout the day, saying his call for extra support in the form of long-range missiles, weapons and aircraft.

“We have to unlock the supply of long-range missiles to Ukraine, it is important for us to expand our cooperation in artillery, we have to achieve the supply of aircraft to Ukraine. And this is a dream. And this is a task. An important task for all of us,” Zelenskyy added.

Zelenskyy also remarked on the move of Germany and the US to send Leopard 2 and Abrams tanks, one-to-one, to Ukraine, showing gratitude to both nations and other allies for “their willingness to provide us with modern and much-needed tanks.”

“All this proves the most important fact for the world today - the fact that freedom is only getting stronger. And the way we are all working together to strengthen freedom, to defend Ukraine and Europe, is a historic achievement of the leaders who are working now,” he continued.
