An aide to Ukraine’s president says talks are underway on allies providing military aircraft while Russia says a Ukrainian strike on a hospital has killed 14.
Talks underway on missiles, jets: Ukraine
Ukraine and its allies are engaged in “fast-track” talks on the possibility of equipping the invaded country with long-range missiles and military aircraft, a top Ukrainian presidential aide says.
Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, said Ukraine’s supporters “understand how the war is developing” and the need to supply planes capable of providing cover for the armoured fighting vehicles that the United States and Germany have pledged.
However, in remarks to online video channel Freedom, Podolyak said that some of Ukraine’s partners maintain a “conservative” attitude to arms deliveries “due to fear of changes in the international architecture”.
Russia and North Korea have accused the US and European countries of prolonging and taking a direct role in the war by sending Ukraine increasingly sophisticated weapons.
