“Our partners have a principled position, they will support Ukraine as long as it takes for our victory,” he added.
During a meeting at the American base in Ramstein in Germany, on Friday, the western allies did not reach an agreement to deliver the heavy tanks to Kiev, due to a lack of approval from Berlin.
Zelensky on Friday praised this meeting, referring to the “hundreds of combat vehicles that have been added to Ukraine’s arsenal”, also speaking of “significant achievements related to missiles and air defense systems”.
Experts believe modern Western-designed heavy tanks will give Kiev a decisive edge in the looming battles in eastern Ukraine, where Russia has resumed the offensive after suffering major setbacks this winter.
Interestingly, representatives of fifty countries attended this meeting with the aim of coordinating military assistance to Ukraine in the face of Moscow.
