The minister expressed confidence that Ukraine will use the military equipment transferred to it by the West only for defense. “We didn’t need to demand [confirmation] of this from Ukraine, they themselves stated this. We have confidence that Ukraine will use weapons only for defense, — said Lambrecht (quoted by Focus).
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba pointed out that the sooner weapons are sent to the Ukrainian military, the more help it will provide to the country. “If the weapons are sent later, we will still say “thank you”, but then a lot will be wasted, many people will die,” — he said.

The Kremlin noted that “inflating” Ukraine weapons will not change the parameters of the special operation. “In any case, the goals of the special military operation will be achieved, they will simply cause more suffering to Ukraine, which is just a tool in the hands of those countries that supply [weapons] there,” — Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the President of Russia, said.
