Ukrainian soldiers sacrifice their lives while Ukraine is convincing world to give weapons – Zelenskyy
Volodymyr Zelenskyy commented on the preparations for the next ‘Ramstein’ meeting and noted that Ukrainian soldiers are sacrificing their lives because of the weapons delays
The president of Ukraine stated this in the evening address of April 17.
Zelenskyy said that he expects the next "Ramstein" to make "solid decisions that will meet the prospects on the battlefield."
"The aggressor must lose. And it is our common responsibility with our partners to win more time for peace, that is, to be as active as possible in providing weapons and ammunition to accelerate our common victory," he said.
Zelenskyy also signed a decree on awarding 127 servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with state decorations, 68 of them posthumously.
"It is very important to understand this: every time we hear that the promised supply of weapons is delayed, every time there are doubts about the type of weapons for Ukraine, about the range or other quality characteristics, it means that Ukrainian soldiers sacrifice their lives to have this time... Time that is spent to convince and to deliver the necessary weapons," the president emphasised.
