The United States will not allow Ukraine to lose the war with Russia, Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin says.

He says the conditions in which the Ukrainian army is fighting are extremely difficult. Unfortunately, the civilian population suffers from Russian drone attacks. Therefore, his message today is quite clear - the US will not allow Ukraine to lose, the Ramstein coalition will not allow this, and the whole free world will not allow this.

Ramstein meeting

The meeting in the Ramstein format is a series of diplomatic meetings of defense ministers of a dozen countries of the world. The purpose of the meetings is to synchronize and accelerate the provision of military aid to Ukraine against the backdrop of Russian aggression. In particular, the issue of supporting our country after the end of the war is raised.

The nineteenth meeting of the Contact Group on the Defense of Ukraine in the Ramstein format took place on February 19. This was the first meeting with the participation of the new Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Oleksandr Syrskyi.

According to Reuters, at the Ramstein meeting on March 19, Austin will try to convince European allies that the administration of President Joe Biden is still committed to supporting Ukraine.
