(MENAFN- UkrinForm) During a visit to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute in the United States, President Volodymyr Zelensky has expressed hope that the US policy of supporting Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression will not change after the presidential election.

This is shown by the website of the President of Ukraine, reports Ukrinform.

It is noted that if the Russian dictator is not stopped in Ukraine, he will go further, and after that the United States will have to defend NATO countries that were previously part of the Soviet Union or within its sphere of influence.

The head of state expressed hope that the US policy of supporting Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression will not change after the presidential election in November, and it is important for the Russian dictator to know this.

“Everything depends solely on the decision of the American people, not on one person. Putin always expects to divide the world, divide the United States and divide European countries. He fears unity,” Zelensky noted.

The president also thanked partners for the decision to strengthen Ukraine’s air defense with five more Patriot systems. He noted that more such air defense systems are needed because Ukraine has a large territory, and Russia uses and combines different types of missiles and changes tactics.

Ukraine needs long-range weapons and permission to use them against airfields on Russian territory from which planes that constantly fire guided bombs at our country take off. In addition, Ukraine is eagerly awaiting F-16 fighter jets. Both the timing of their arrival and the number of aircraft are important.

“Russia is using 300 warplanes against Ukraine. We need at least 128 planes to counter them, and these numbers are known to our partners,” the president emphasized.

As reported, the NATO summit will take place in Washington on July 9-11, with the participation of the Ukrainian delegation led by President Volodymyr Zelensky.
