The armed forces of Ukraine are firmly united by the desire to fight and destroy the Russian army and will not redirect the weapons transferred to them elsewhere.
About it in an interview Ukrinform said Special Advisor to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny, veteran of the US armed forces Dan Rice.
“From my experience of working with the Ukrainian military over the past three months, I have established that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are firmly united by the desire to fight and destroy the Russian army. I believe that Ukraine is one of the biggest allies of the United States, and I am confident that the weapons transferred to the Ukrainian forces will not be diverted to any other place, and I have no fear that the Ukrainian leadership will violate any agreement,” he noted.
Zaluzhny’s adviser stressed that Washington believes in the Ukrainian people, their political and military leadership, and the courageous Ukrainian soldiers.
“And that is why I constantly write about this and speak publicly in the United States, recommending that Ukraine immediately deliver the right amount of weapons (and that means even more) to drive the Russians out of Ukraine and help the “First Army of the World” reclaim their territory, people. culture and peace,” Rice added.
As Ukrinform reported, EU representative Peter Stano said that the European Union there is no reason to doubt the obligations of the government of Ukraine for the proper use and accounting of weaponswhich comes to Ukraine with the assistance of the EU to ensure its right to self-defense.
Earlier in a number of Western media there was an assumption that NATO and the EU were allegedly concerned about the smuggling of weapons from Ukraine. Both organizations have denied such claims, which may be the result of the Kremlin’s disinformation campaign against Ukraine and against Western countries.
