Ukraine has received only 10% of requested weapons

Ministry of Defense of Ukraine said the country has only received a fraction of the arms it requested from Western allies to fend off Russian troops, Deutsche Welle reports.

“From what we said we need, we got about 10 percent,” Deputy Defense Minister Anna Malyar said in televised remarks. She added that there should be “a clear time frame” for deliveries.

“We need to know clear deadlines because every day there’s a delay, we’re talking about the lives of Ukrainian soldiers and civilians,” she said.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy reiterated his urgent appeal for heavy weapons.

In a statement on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, Zelenskyy expressed gratitude for what had been delivered so far but that “it must come faster” if peace is to be achieved.
