U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said that the coming weeks and months will be crucial in the war in Ukraine. At the same time, he assured that the West would act decisively to help Ukrainians fight for their freedom.

Austin made the statement at the opening of the 22nd Ramstein, which was published on the Pentagon's website. "Ukraine's survival and success are critical to Ukrainian security, European security, global security, and American security," he said.

The minister clarified that if Russian dictator Vladimir Putin wins, other tyrants will conclude that they can also try to invade and conquer their sovereign neighbors.

Austin added that this would leave Europe under Putin's "shadow" and make the world more violent and chaotic.

Therefore, Ukraine's fight for freedom is important for the entire West.

The Pentagon chief himself is determined to provide Ukraine with everything it needs to succeed, he said.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, on Monday, May 20, the United States convened another meeting in the Ramstein format. The contact group on Ukraine's defense led by Austin and the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Charles Brown, is meeting online.
