In 2024, the format of aid to Ukraine will be modified into the so-called Ramstein 2.0. This means that from now on, Ukraine's allies will provide their support mainly not on an individual basis, but in a coalition format and in line with the established demand.

The Ministry of Defense calls on all nations to step up their efforts to repel Russian aggression and to join the coalition that best matches their respective capabilities in providing military aid to Ukraine.

As reported, the Reform Support Office was created under the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
