Speaking to the media in France, the US secretary of state Antony Blinken has said it is “absolutely essential” that Ukraine gets more munitions and air defences, APA reports citing The Guardian.

According to Reuters, he told the media “It is absolutely essential to get Ukrainians what they continue to need to defend themselves, particularly when it comes to munitions and air defences.”

“It’s another reason why the supplementary budget request that President Biden has made to Congress must be fulfilled as quickly as possible,” he added.

Blinken and French defence minister Sebastien Lecornu earlier visited a factory where arms producer Nexter says it is aiming to increase production.
