Quote: „Defence Minister Rustem Umierov has presented a report on the timetable for the delivery of weapons from partners within the framework of the announced aid packages. I have issued an order to take all possible measures to reduce the timeframe. It especially concerns the supply of air defence systems to protect human lives and energy infrastructure.“

Details: The president has also reportedly heard a comprehensive report on the degree of readiness of fortifications in the border regions and the areas of active hostilities. The report was presented by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal and Oleksandr Yakovets, Head of the State Special Transport Service.

Oleksandr Syrskyi, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, reported on the current situation across the combat zone and the organisation of unit rotations for restoration of strength. The attendees discussed the pace and needs for manning new brigades.

In addition, Oleksandr Kamyshin, Ukraine’s Minister for Strategic Industries, reported on the current pace of production of drones and electronic warfare equipment and their deployment to the battlefield and to cover critical facilities.

Previously: On 24 April US President Joe Biden signed legislation enacted by Congress that offers about US$61 billion in new military and economic aid to Ukraine, as well as help to other US allies.

The White House assured the media that the necessary assistance would be quickly delivered directly to the Ukrainian Defence Forces.
