Kiev gives Washington list of necessary weapons

The Ukrainian party agreed on lists of weapons for deliveries from the US and expects an appropriate political solution. This was stated by the chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Viktor Muzhenko.

"All the lists have been submitted from our side, everything has been agreed, we are only waiting for a political decision. Giving weapons will be a clear signal to all countries, including NATO members, that such deliveries can be made to Ukraine," Muzhenko said.

According to him, the Ukrainian party expected air defense systems, air reconnaissance and electronic warfare, as well as supplies of antitank weapons from the US.

"As for the samples of weapons planned for delivery from the US, it is, in particular, air defense systems, especially air reconnaissance means, electronic warfare means, which are critical for the Ukrainian Armed Forces, and our defense industry cannot yet provide them for us. We also need medical vehicles, especially armoured vehicles, but this is non-lethal technology, so the first batch of such cars has already arrived in Ukraine, they will soon be received by the troops. And, of course, anti-tank weapons also in the list, even though today the domestic industry provides us with weapons modeled on "Stugna" or "Korsar," he added.

On August 24 during a visit to Kiev, US Secretary of Defense James Mattis said that in the United States were considering the issue of providing Ukraine with defensive lethal weapons.
