US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin believes that joint efforts can strengthen the security of Ukraine for a long period.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Austin said this at the beginning of a meeting of the Contact Group on Defense Support to Ukraine (the so-called “Ramstein-3”) in Brussels.

“Since our virtual meeting three weeks ago, we have seen important progress on several fronts. Allies are providing launchers and Harpoon missiles to strengthen Ukraine’s coastal defenses. The UK is providing M270 multiple rocket launchers and training to assist Ukraine in protecting its territory in the Donbas. Several of our allies and partners are providing howitzers and artillery ammunition, and now Ukrainian forces are using them to defend the Donbas. At the same time, other forms of military assistance from tanks to helicopters continue to arrive in Ukraine,” Austin said.

“Therefore, we managed to get a lot done during this time, but we shouldn’t waste time,” Austin added.

    • The Old Fart needs to make sure the genocide continues to the midterm elections…
      Putin’s ass is on the line and many leaders appear unwilling to remove the cancer from Europe. They need to start representing their people because the people understand Putin has to go.
