Over $114 Billion in Aid to Ukraine Since Start of Ramstein Coalition

Since the formation of the “Ramstein” coalition, Ukraine has received $114 billion in aid, reported Dmytro Lazutkin, spokesman for the Ministry of Defense, during the nationwide telethon “Edyny Novyny”

Today marks the two-year anniversary of the coalition, and the upcoming "Ramstein" meeting will primarily focus on the provision of weapons, various caliber projectiles, and logistics.

Lazutkin highlighted the crucial role of the "Ramstein" format in supporting Ukraine's resistance against the invasion, combined with the valor and heroism of Ukrainian forces. "Today’s discussions will center on expediting the adjustment of supply routes and logistics to ensure the prompt arrival of Western weaponry. Just before Ramstein, several countries reiterated their commitment to significant financial support for Ukraine," he added.

The meeting will prioritize discussions on weapon supplies and the provision of various caliber projectiles, especially 155-mm ones, as well as the expected delivery of ATACMS ammunition to Ukraine.

Lazutkin also mentioned the global unity in supporting Ukraine, involving not only NATO members but also progressive non-NATO countries. As of now, 22 non-NATO countries have joined the coalition, and their numbers are expected to increase.

The upcoming defense meeting of the Contact Group on Defense of Ukraine in the "Ramstein" format on April 26 will focus on the efforts of the eight coalitions supporting Ukraine, ensuring continued and enhanced support for the country.
