Italy will continue supporting Ukraine, but assistance cannot be unlimited — Italian Defense Ministry
Italian Defense Minister Guido Crosetto has reiterated the government's position: Italy’s support for Kyiv is not in doubt, but the longer the conflict lasts, the more difficult it is to provide military equipment
This was stated by Italian Defense Minister, Guido Crosetto, in an interview with Fanpage.
"Italian support has always been convincing from a political point of view, but it has never been unlimited in terms of the possibilities of providing assistance. From a technical point of view, this is a limit on the amount, while nothing has changed at the level of political decisions," the minister said.
Italy is ready to help Ukraine, but without depleting its own defense stocks. This is the government's position.
In particular, Italian Defense Minister Guido Crosetto expressed concern over the escalation of the situation at the front.
"We are witnessing the impossibility of resolving the conflict on the ground. That is why we continue to help those who are right, but every day we analyze more fruitful tactics to build plans for dialogue, achieve peace and start rebuilding the captured and destroyed territory," he explained.
However, it is not yet clear whether there will be an eighth aid package: there is an intention to draw it up, as Antonio Tajani has already stated, but what the Italian government is ready to provide may be very far from Kyiv's wishes.
The day before, Italy signed an agreement with Ukraine on the joint restoration of the Transfiguration Cathedral in the city center, which was destroyed during the Russian attack on Odesa on July 23.
