"Not everything yet": Zelenskyy talks about new US aid to Ukraine and security guarantees

Zelenskyy spoke about the arrival of new US aid to Ukraine

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that after a positive vote in the U.S. Congress, military aid has already begun to arrive in Ukraine. At the same time, the head of state emphasized that our defenders have not yet received all the necessary tools to fight the invaders.

Zelenskyy emphasized that not all brigades are equipped with weapons yet. The President said this at a press conference following a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

"Something has started to arrive, I will not say in detail what exactly. Unfortunately, not everything is yet available to fill our army and staff the appropriate number of brigades," Zelenskyy said.

At the same time, the Head of State noted that the security guarantee agreements have significantly helped Ukraine over the past six months. According to him, it was thanks to these agreements that our country received the means to protect itself from Russian terrorist attacks.

"As for our security assurance documents, they have helped us a lot, especially at a time when we were expecting support from the United States, these packages helped us. I think you understand the cost of air defense. I will tell you honestly that at this time, the systems or parts of systems that have been coming in the last six months, they have been coming in thanks to the funding that was specified in the nine security assurance agreements. It really helped us," the president said.

As a reminder, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg arrived on a visit to Ukraine on Monday, April 29. In Kyiv, he met with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to discuss military support for the Ukrainian state.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, after Biden signed the law on assistance to Ukraine, the Pentagon announced the content of a new arms package for the Ukrainian army. It includes air defense systems, artillery shells, armored vehicles, anti-tank weapons, and ATACMS missiles.
