No sooner had a coalition of countries agreed to send tanks to Ukraine than President Volodymyr Zelensky declared that he wanted NATO allies to send long-range missiles and jets to his war-torn country to help repel Russian troops.
In a nighttime address, Zelensky said: “I’ve spoken with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg today… We must also open deliveries of long-range missiles to Ukraine, it is important – we must expand our cooperation in artillery. This is a dream. And this is a task.”
In a devastating blow to the Kremlin, nine countries joined Britain in agreeing to send tanks to destroy Russia’s forces in eastern Ukraine. The coalition came together just 48 hours after Boris Johnson’s rallying cry in the Daily Mail, imploring the UK’s allies to end their dithering.
