Ukraine Rallies US Support as Germany Rules Out Ammunition Goal
- Yermak meets with officials during trip to Washington
- Germany says EU’s March ammunition target will be missed
Ukraine is trying to win over doubters in the US to back a fresh push against occupying Russian forces before the presidential election.
Andriy Yermak, a top aide to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, met with national security advisers from key allies during a visit to Washington amid opposition among some Republicans to continued support. As Yermak said he was preparing to meet US lawmakers Tuesday, German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said that the European Union won’t meet a pledge to send Ukraine 1 million artillery shells by the end of March.
