Western MLRS, artillery played a decisive role in the counteroffensive of the Ukrainian army – Zelensky

The Ukrainian army managed to partially drive out the Russian invaders from the temporarily occupied areas as soon as they received Western weapons, namely artillery systems.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in an interview with Ouest-France, reports an Ukrinform correspondent.

“The multiple rocket launcher systems, the artillery and the motivation of our people played a decisive role. As soon as we received artillery, we managed to advance. CAESAR howitzers help us a lot,” Zelensky said.

In his words, armored vehicles are also important for Ukraine now, as they help save the lives of servicemen.

“Technologies such as combat or reconnaissance drones are very important for us, as well as armored vehicles, in order to save human lives,” noted the Ukrainian president.

According to Zelensky, Ukraine will continue to ask its partners for additional arms deliveries.

“I keep a good dialogue with [French President – Ed.] Emanuel Macron. He helps us. He knows we will ask for more weapons. We would like to see more decisive actions from Germany, Turkey and the United States, because there are few manufacturers of air defense systems. I would like France, like other countries, to do more. We need more weapons,” Zelensky stressed.

Recall that Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said earlier that the Ukrainian authorities will ask the West for more weapons until the country wins the war against Russia.
