The next Ukrainian Defense Contact Group conference will be held on July 20 online

On July 11, the Pentagon press service announced the preparation of the next meeting of the Ukrainian Defense Contact Group, which was discussed in a telephone conversation between Lloyd Austin and Olexii Reznikov, minister of defense of Ukraine.

During the telephone communication, Reznikov received up-to-date information regarding the $400 million aid package from the United States and also discussed the results of 3 previous UDCG meetings and plans for 4. This time, due to the busy schedules of many summit participants, Rammstein-4 will be held online.

We remind you that the first meeting of the UDCG took place at the US Rammstein base in Germany, the second — online, and the third — in Brussels. With each new meeting, the number of participants increased. After Rammstein-3, Ukraine received 155 mm howitzers, Harpoon systems, HIMARS shells and other weapons for the country's defense.
