In an address to the Italian parliament, PM Giorgia Meloni said the only path towards peace between Kyiv and Moscow lies through helping Ukraine defend itself militarily, Reuters reported on Oct. 26.

“Peace can be achieved by supporting Ukraine ... it is the only chance we have for the two sides to negotiate,” said Meloni.

She added that it’s vital for Italy’s prestige and international reputation to continue supplying Ukraine with arms, even if the scope of this assistance won’t play a decisive role in the ultimate resolution of the war.
