NATO allies have an agreement not to transfer attack aircraft and tanks to Ukraine.
As Emmanuel Macron said during his visit to Kyiv , so we agreed not to go to war with Russia.
“This is the official position of NATO partners that we are helping Ukraine with defensive weapons, but we are not going to war with Russia. And therefore, it was agreed not to supply certain types of weapons, for example, attack aircraft or tanks. And President Zelensky is aware of this, & ndash; Macron said Thursday at a meeting with reporters.
He added that the main aid has focused on stockpiles and on armored vehicles.
“We have provided a lot of armored vehicles to Ukraine. And they provided 12 self-propelled guns CAESAR. President Zelensky asked for more. And in the near future there will be an additional six self-propelled guns. These are the latest generations of self-propelled systems, which are more long-range. And thus the Ukrainian army can be more mobile and maneuverable. For some requests for weapons, we cannot answer, because there is no such equipment in service. Then we look at which country we can take this and just finance this weaponry, — Macron added.
