Kuleba, on the advances of the Ukrainian Army in the east: “The situation is changing but we need more weapons”


MADRID, Sep. 13 (Moose Gazette) –

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister, Dimitro Kuleba, has applauded the recent progress made by the country’s Armed Forces in the context of the Russian invasion of the territory, but has warned that to move forward the country “needs more heavy weapons.”

Kuleba has thus specified that the Ukrainian troops “will be able to put an end to the war in Russia if they have more weapons from the West” and has stressed that “the situation is changing”.

“We need more weapons and more ammunition from the allies to seize this moment, save more lives and liberate more territories at a faster rate. The more military support we have now, the sooner this war ends,” he said in an interview with the American newspaper ‘ Political’.

In this regard, he has asked the international community to focus on supplies of “those weapons that Ukraine needs to achieve victory and peace.” The minister has directly linked the advances of the Ukrainian troops to the support of third countries and has asserted that it is an “incredible result”.

“Ukraine’s progress in the east and south of the country shows that all investments by Western allies to strengthen our defense are paying off,” he said.

In addition, he stressed that “nobody should doubt Ukraine’s chances of winning.” On Monday, the Ukrainian Army claimed that it had managed to liberate almost 6,000 square kilometers of territory in the last days of the counteroffensive.

However, the figure contrasts with the 3,000 square kilometers recovered during the month of September that the Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Valeri Zaluzhni, spoke about on Sunday.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported for its part that between Sunday and Monday the Ukrainian forces have managed to expel the Russian forces from 20 towns.
