Kyiv request NATO for more weapons, full oil embargo


Ukraine has urged NATO to supply more weapons as it seeks to defend itself against further aggression from Russia.

Members of the NATO military alliance have been supplying Kyiv with weapons ever since Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine in February. The US, for instance, has supplied anti-aircraft Stingers, thousands of anti-tank weapons and millions of rounds of ammunition.

However, for Ukraine’s Foreign Affairs Minister Dmytro Kuleba, this is not enough.

“My agenda is very simple. It only has three items on it. It’s weapons, weapons, and weapons,” Kuleba said as he arrived in Brussels, Belgium for a meeting with NATO members.

“In the recent month(s), in the recent weeks Ukrainian army and the entire Ukrainian nation has demonstrated that we know how to fight. We know how to win. But without sustainable and sufficient supplies of all weapons requested by Ukraine, these wins will be accompanied with enormous sacrifices,” he added.

The Czech Republic became the first NATO member earlier this week to announce the deployment of tanks to Ukraine.

Ukraine’s request for more practical help comes at a crucial moment in the war.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday that Russia is moving forces from north Ukraine to reinforce them and move them to the east.
