Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Asks NATO for “Weapons, Weapons and Weapons”

HeadlineApr 08, 2022

In Brussels, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Thursday the U.S. was preparing to send even more advanced weaponry to Ukraine. Blinken made the pledge after meeting with NATO ministers. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba spoke after joining the meeting.

Dmytro Kuleba: “My agenda is very simple. It has only three items on it. It’s weapons, weapons and weapons.”

The U.S. has sent Ukraine $1.7 billion in military aid since Russia invaded Ukraine six weeks ago. Peace activists say the focus should be on diplomacy. CodePink’s Medea Benjamin wrote, “Ukraine’s foreign minister’s agenda should not be weapons, weapons, weapons, but negotiations, negotiations, negotiations and ceasefire, ceasefire, ceasefire.”
