If Ukraine does not start producing weapons, partners will cut aid — political strategist Zahorodniy
Political strategist Taras Zahorodniy believes that Ukraine should cut public spending that does not relate to the army
He shared his opinions with Espreso TV
"We need a military economy. Ukraine needs to cut public spending that is not related to the army. Ukraine needs more weapons to bring the war to Russia’s territory. We must produce drones, missiles, and armored vehicles. Ukraine must finance science that provides promising research on the production of new weapons that do not yet exist," Zahorodniy said.
According to the political strategist, it has been noted that the Russian Black Sea Fleet is increasingly ceasing to exist.
"Because Ukrainians took responsibility by creating surface drones. The whole world is already seeing the results, including our allies, and it is working for us. We have to understand that if we do not switch to a military economy, if we do not start producing weapons, then our aid will be cut. Our allies have a question: why is the Ukrainian rear organized in a way that does not work for the defense industry?" Zahorodniy emphasized.
- On December 26, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy chaired a meeting of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief's Staff to discuss the increase in domestic defense production.
- Defense Express expert Valeriy Ryabykh noted that the Ukrainian drone Kozak Mamai effectively destroys Russian ships in the Black Sea.
