On Friday, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the leader of war-torn Ukraine, said that his courageous people and force continue to tolerate and resist waves of Moscow’s air assaults and that Ukrainian Air Force and defense capability have been made stronger than ever. He said that in the next year, the Ukrainian Air Defense Forces will become even more capable of effectively countering Russia’s devastating air raids.
Mr. Zelenskyy said that the Ukrainian Air Force can become the strongest in the West, which is hence an assurance of defense not only for Ukraine but also for the region and continent. In order to boost Ukraine’s defense against Russian aggression and barbarity, Jens Stoltenberg, Secretary-General of the NATO military alliance, asked member nations to provide Kyiv forces with more arms and equipment.
