Ukraine boosts domestic weapons production and militarizes economy — Kuleba
In order to reduce Ukraine's dependence on US support on the eve of the presidential election in the United States, Ukraine is increasing its own production of all types of weapons and militarizing its economy
Welt reports this with reference to the words of Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.
According to Kuleba, the US presidential election in 2024 will be important for Ukraine, so "we will have to wait and see."
"But we are preparing because we cannot afford to depend solely on American support. That is why we are now investing huge amounts of money in our own production of all types of weapons, significantly increasing production volumes and militarizing our economy," Kuleba said.
Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba discussed arms assistance on the phone with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and emphasized the importance of supplying ATACMS missiles to Ukraine.
