NATO Must Choose whether We Indeed Are Allies - Zelensky

NATO must decide if it is Kyiv's ally, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Friday, urging defense ministers from the bloc's member states to step up arms deliveries to his struggling forces.

His appeal to Western partners to provide at least seven more air defence systems came hours after Russia launched a wave of fatal drone and missile attacks across the country.

 NATO countries have agreed to give Ukraine more air defences after desperate pleas for advanced systems to shoot down Russian attacks, alliance chief Jens Stoltenberg has said.

"NATO defence ministers have agreed to step up and provide further military support, including more air defence," Mr Stoltenberg said after virtual talks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

"NATO has mapped out existing capabilities across the alliance and there are systems that can be made available to Ukraine," he said.

"So I expect new announcements on air defence capabilities for Ukraine soon."
