Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba says he expects NATO members to send Kyiv the weapons it needs but insists they have to act quickly as Russia readies another major offensive.

“Either you help us now — and I’m speaking about days, not weeks, or your help will come too late, and many people will die, many civilians will lose their homes, many villages will be destroyed. Exactly because this help came too late,” Kuleba says after meeting NATO foreign ministers in Brussels.

“I have no doubts that Ukraine will have weapons necessary to fight. The question is the timeline. This discussion is not about the list of weapons. The discussion is about the timeline,” he tells journalists.

Ukraine is pushing the West to increase its arms supplies with heavier weaponry including air defense systems, artillery, armored vehicles, and jets, as Moscow refocuses its offensive on the east of the country.
