The Ukrainian delegation at the NATO summit will discuss strengthening air defense to protect against Russian attacks. This is a priority, according to the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

According to him, US President Joe Biden and other NATO leaders can be more powerful than before.

"Although I am grateful to the president, the administration, the United States Congress for the package that was voted for. We expect that it (the package - ed.) will gradually come to the battlefield and strengthen our army," Zelenskyy added.
