Weapons, weapons and weapons: What can Ukraine expect to be sent?

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba isn’t the only one warning of horrendous battles to come.

Western military officials expect Russia to throw everything into an offensive in the Donbas, in an effort to secure something that Moscow can describe as a victory.

The question is how long it’ll take before the Russians are ready and whether Ukraine will be able to withstand the pressure when it comes.

Hence the sense of urgency, with Kuleba warning on Thursday that additional military support must come in days, not weeks, saying that the three items on his agenda were “weapons, weapons, and weapons”.

He and Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg are deliberately coy about what equipment is being sent.
