Zelensky celebrates “the historic US decision” to co-produce weapons with Ukraine
In his speech to the nation last night, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky took stock of his visit last week to the United States and Canada, and highlighted, among all the commitments made, “the historic decision of the United States to produce weapons and defense” jointly with Ukraine. “Specifically, air defense,” Zelensky said of the defensive systems that Ukraine and the US will co-produce if this commitment materializes. “Something like this was a fantasy until recently. But it will be a reality,” added the Ukrainian head of state, who highlighted that cooperation with the US in this field will mean a qualitative leap for the Ukrainian defense industry.
