Ukraine’s foreign minister tells his US counterpart in a face-to-face meeting his country needs fighter jets and air-defense systems, and called NATO’s refusal to implement a no-fly zone over Ukraine a “sign of weakness.”

“It’s no secret that the highest demand that we have is in fighter jets, attack aircraft, and air-defense systems,” Dmytro Kuleba says he told US Secretary of State Antony Blinken in talks at the Ukraine-Poland border.
