Address by Minister of Defence of Ukraine, Oleksiy Reznikov


Fellow Ukrainians! Military-political authorities of the state are carrying out intensive negotiations with our partners, aimed at the allocation of support for the defense of Ukraine.

Ministry of Defence is working on its’ level, to involve material-technical support and to cooperate with commercial distributors. Military-technical cooperation is an extremely sensitive domain, where public comments should be well-considered. In particular, during the war. In these terms, I urge you not to share information, concerning weapons procurements, provided to our country by the other states.
