The Ukrainian Commander-in-Chief Meets with American and British Armies


The commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian armed forces, Valeriy Zalogniy, said that he held a meeting with the American and British armies, discussed the needs of Kyiv forces for missiles and strengthening the Ukrainian missile defense system.

Constructive Negotiations

He said: “We met with our American and British partners, discussed a wide range of issues, held constructive negotiations. We briefed the allies in detail on the operational situation along the entire front. We listened to the commanders and discussed current problems at the front of the forces.”

Ukrainian Army Needs

He added: “We discussed the needs of the Ukrainian army for missiles, weapons and military equipment. We are waiting for good news from the allies.”

Main Intelligence Directorate Participation

The video published on Zalonyiy’s Telegram channel shows that the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Kirill Budanov, also participated in the negotiations.

Focus on Strengthening Air Defense

According to Zalonny, the parties focused on strengthening Ukrainian air defense, providing additional vehicles for evacuating the wounded and finding ways to repair equipment.

Discussion on the Situation in the Black Sea

It is reported that the situation in the Black Sea was discussed as a separate topic, and Zalogniy added that the Ukrainian leadership spoke about its vision of “the development of the situation on the front line.”

Ukrainian Counter-Offensive

The Ukrainian counter-offensive began on June 4, when Kiev deployed NATO-trained brigades armed with Western weapons, including Leopard tanks, which were widely deployed on the battlefield. Footage of military equipment was then filmed burning in the area. The battlefield caused widespread resonance in the West.

Russian President’s Statement

For his part, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on July 21 that there were no results for Ukrainian forces, and “Western leaders were clearly disappointed” with the progress of the counteroffensive, since neither all the huge resources that were pumped there nor the supply of weapons to Ukraine helped: tanks, artillery, armored vehicles and missiles, as well as sending thousands of mercenaries and advisers.
