Ukraine Wants Advanced Weapons: The war between Russia and Ukraine has been going on for more than seven months. Meanwhile, Ukraine is facing a shortage of modern weapons for the war with Russian troops. Ukraine has been continuously demanding from the West to supply modern weapons. Ukraine’s leaders are pressuring the US and other Western allies for air defense systems and long-range weapons to keep pace with the counter-offensive against Russia.
