In an interview with Politico, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba urged NATO countries to boost their weapons production, adding that if they don’t, “we won’t be able to win – as simple as that.”

Kuleba said Ukraine needs air defense, tanks, and production lines.

“We also have to face one fact: There are countries in the world who have what Ukraine needs but who are not going to sell it in sufficient quantities for political reasons,” he said.

“Instead of counting on them and spending months on trying to convince them, production has to be launched so that… we do not fall dependent on the whims of the third countries who have stuff in stocks but who are not willing to share it.”

On Nov. 28, Kuleba said the meeting of NATO foreign affairs heads would be equally dedicated to Ukraine’s defense issues, namely new weapons, ammunition, military equipment, and the country’s energy system.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Nov. 25 that he would urge member states at the meeting to supply Ukraine with more fuel, medical supplies, winter equipment, and drone jammers.

He added that NATO would also assist Ukraine in shifting from Soviet-era equipment to modern NATO standards, doctrine, and training.
