Ukrainian defenders are holding their positions in the Kharkiv region, but more weapons are needed. This was stated by the Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Rustem Umerov in an interview with CNN, according to the Telegram channel “We-Ukraine”.


According to him, problems with delays in supplies should be resolved.

“Weapons are arriving late, and the Russians are taking advantage of this. The supply was delayed for six months. That is why they have expanded the frontline to prevent us from using these weapons,” Umerov said.

The minister emphasized that, despite the delays, our soldiers are holding their positions and repelling attacks.

“We are also trying to evacuate civilians from the border towns that are under fire. So, we are holding our ground,” the Defense Minister assured.

It is worth noting that Ukraine requires more air defense systems, artillery, armored personnel carriers, armored personnel carriers, and ammunition.
