Moreover, from the start of Russia’s full-scale military operation against Ukraine, which was started on February 24, the European Union has already made the announcement of a 1.5 billion euros package in military aid to Kyiv, according to the authorities.

Meanwhile, Kyiv believes that these deliveries are insufficient as well as very slow. The European funds made available are used the primarily to finance protective equipment, first aid kits as well as fuel, but also “lethal military equipment for the defensive purposes.”

In addition, the war-torn nation would like to get more heavy arms, such as armoured vehicles, anti-aircraft systems, artillery as well as fighter planes.

As per the authorities of Ukraine as well as the Western intelligence services, Russia is preparing for a massive offensive in eastern Ukraine to take complete control of the Donbas region.
