NATO and G7 actively seeking more air defence systems for Ukraine

General Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary, took part in Thursday’s G7 meetings, telling that the military alliance was actively seeking to send more air defence systems to Ukraine as quickly as possible.

“We are working at the possibility of dispatching more Patriot batteries to Ukraine. We are in dialogue with some specific countries”

Also Kyiv warned foreign ministers from the G7 (Group of Seven) they had to change strategy if they wanted Ukraine to withstand increasingly destructive Russian air assaults. G7 ministers meeting on the island of Capri have acknowledged the need to send more air defence systems to Ukraine. They applauded Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba as he joined them on the second day of their three-day meeting.

Kuleba lamented the fact that while US, British and French forces had intervened on Saturday to prevent Iranian missiles from hitting Israel, his own country lacked vital defences, as he told reporters.

Earlier in Washington, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal told reporters that Ukraine had asked for additional air defense equipment and another Patriot missile battery, adding that Kyiv was looking for a minimum of seven Patriot systems.

NATO and G7 cooperation of seeking and producing more air defence systems will be useful for safety not only for Ukraine, but all the EU countries.
