Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said that the country needs long-range missiles with a range of up to 300 km, while it is ready to guarantee that these Western weapons will not be involved in attacks on Russian territory.

Reznikov said this at a joint meeting of the Ukrainian government and the European Commission.

He emphasized that "in order to win, we need to seize the strategic initiative."

The minister called on partners to help with the installation of anti-missile defense systems as soon as possible.

In this context, he emphasized the desire of the state to acquire the 

Patriot and SAMP/T

systems at the first opportunity, along with the delivery of the new

IRIS-T and NASAMS systems.


If we had the opportunity to strike at a distance of 300 kilometers, the Russian army would not be able to provide defense and would be forced to lose

. Ukraine is ready to provide any guarantees that your weapons will not be involved in attacks on Russian territory. We have enough targets for temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine and are ready to coordinate goals with our partners," Reznikov assured.

He also stated Ukraine's need for tanks, armored vehicles, and an increase in the number of artillery, shells and weapons capable of surpassing and destroying the enemy's electronic warfare and air defense systems.

We will remind, earlier the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, said that diplomats are in priority mode of negotiations with allies regarding the transfer of jet aircraft and missiles with a range of 300 km.  

The ex-commander of the US Army in Europe, retired General Ben Godges believes that Ukraine will have an indisputable advantage on the battlefield if it receives ATACMS missiles with a range of 300 km.

Note that, according to the media, the USA may soon announce the transfer of GLSDB missiles with a range of up to 150 km to Ukraine.

They will have the same impact on the course of hostilities as before the HIMARS systems.
