Details: According to Danilov, the allies are helping Ukraine to reach the level of equipment necessary for the start of a counter-offensive.

At the same time, the Secretary emphasised that sometimes the officials of allied countries "promise one thing and do a completely different one". He did not specify what he meant by this. 

Background: 

  • On 17 April, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that Ukrainian soldiers pay with their lives for the time they wait for weapons deliveries – this happens every time partners delay or hesitate on the type or certain characteristics of weapons.
  • Earlier, the American publication Washington Post stated that Ukrainian counter-offensive is delayed due to slow supply of weaponry.
