As NATO and allied defense ministers prepare to meet with their Ukrainian counterpart in Brussels, a top adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said his compatriots are eagerly awaiting “a decision” on weapon supplies. “Ratio [Russia] / [Ukraine] artillery in some areas: 10 to 1,” said Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the Head of the Office of President of Ukraine, on Twitter. “Daily, I receive a message from the defenders: ‘We are holding on, just say: when to expect the weapons?.’ I address this question to the Rammstein participants. Ukrainian officials have warned that Russia is gaining ground in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine, specifically in the city of Severodonetsk, which has seen some of the heaviest fighting recently. Without an influx of more weapons, some Ukrainian officials have said it will be increasingly difficult to halt Russia’s incremental progress or reclaim occupied ground in the region.
