The Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov, during his speech at the panel of the International Security Forum GLOBSEC-2022 informed about the beginning of the preparation of Ukrainian artillery calculations in Europe for the use of MLRS HIMARS and M270.

Oleksiy Reznikov welcomed the US decision to provide Ukraine with multiple HIMARS rocket launchers and noted that the Minister of Defense of the United Kingdom Ben Wallace had announced that our country had received the M270 MLRS.

"Recall the words of American astronaut Neil Armstrong, who landed on the moon, that 'this is a small step for man, but a giant leap for all mankind.' So, the decision of the White House on HIMARS and London on M270 is the first step for Ukraine and a huge leap in the issue of deterring Russian aggression," said the Minister of Defense of Ukraine.

He also praised the implementation of the idea of ​​the Ministers of Defense of the United States and Great Britain Lloyd Austin III and Ben Wallace at a conference on assistance to Ukraine, which took place in London, and later transformed into the Rammstein format.

"The next meeting is expected in June. Such a coordination system will help us to continue to provide in the future. For example - new aircraft, missile systems, and cybernetic systems. The demining program in Ukraine is relevant, because we have a lot of unexploded ordnance on our land," the Minister of Defense of Ukraine added.

"Zuzana howitzer supply contract is a major investment in the Slovak economy."

During the discussion on the sidelines of the International Security Forum GLOBSEC-2022, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov welcomed the signing of a contract with the Slovak side for the supply of Zuzana howitzers to the Defense Forces of Ukraine.

"It is a good idea for Ukraine to be part of NATO's defense strategy for the next 10 years, which will be adopted at the Madrid Summit"

During the International Security Forum GLOBSEC-2022, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov assessed the level of assistance to Ukraine as one that allows only to deter the aggressor. Instead, the Defense Forces of Ukraine need more to launch an effective counteroffensive and push the Russian invaders out of our country, to liberate all the temporarily occupied territories.
