The next meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group (the Ramstein format) will take place tomorrow, April 26th. Kyiv wants to discuss the problems that have arisen due to the suspension of American aid, according to an evening address by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

According to him, Ukraine is already preparing for tomorrow's meeting in the Ramstein format.

"We will discuss, among other things, how to quickly overcome the difficulties and problems that have accumulated over the past six months while we awaited decisions on American support," the president explained.

He noted that at the political level, the issue of resuming assistance has been resolved. Now it is necessary for the issues of filling the packages with necessary weaponry and logistics to be addressed.

Zelenskyy thanked all countries that have made new decisions to assist Ukraine during this time.

New Ramstein

The meeting in the Ramstein format is scheduled for April 26, announced a few days ago by the Minister of Defense of the Netherlands, Kajsa Ollongren.

The previous meeting took place on March 19, making it the 20th session. The main topics were Ukraine's needs for weapons, with some allies announcing new supplies of military aid to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The new Ramstein meeting will take place after the United States passed a law providing over $60 billion in assistance to Ukraine. Washington has already announced the first package, which includes long-range ATACMS missiles.
