We have given the Ukrainian side comments on it and gave the peacetime and wartime formations, replenishment of losses, spare components, and what is left in the analysis, “He emphasised.
Defense Minister Dimitar Stoyanov said, “What we are providing is among the top three of Ukraine’s objectives as the armament sought by us.” He stated, “I believe the colleagues from Ukraine will be satisfied. The lists have been agreed upon with the Ukrainian side.
