April 29, 2024


FREEDOM TV channel and the co-director of foreign policy and international security programmes of Razumkov Centre Mykhailo Pashkov discussed the results of the meeting in the "Ramstein" format in a live broadcast. The Pentagon Chief Lloyd Austin confirmed that the US would allocate USD 6 billion for the purchase of weapons for Ukraine. The deliveries include air-to-air missiles for fighters, which may scare Russia.

The guest noted that while preparations for the Peace Summit are underway, the Kremlin intends to use the entire hybrid toolkit to counter it. Therefore, Kyiv should strengthen its diplomatic efforts and isolate the Russian Federation. See more details in the interview.
