  • 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.”
