He says that the two countries have an understanding of the security and defense sector cooperation.

"Recently, there were defense equipment batches. I can tell you now, without naming the exact day, but literally in the coming days arrive another batch of such equipment. It saves the lives of our guys on the front lines", said Chalyi.

He also expressed the view that the US is still considering the issue of granting Ukraine lethal weapons.

The Ambassador also stressed the current president and his administration does not support this issue, so before the election date in America on November 9, the question will not be considered.
