The Ukrainian military still lacks heavy weapons, despite the support of Western countries, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov said on Ukrainian national television on June 15.

"What is happening at the front today is not an easy situation – it's difficult," he said.

"Our military is leveling this situation as best they can, both literally and figuratively, but today we still do not have enough weapons, heavy weapons to say that we already have parity."

Danilov added that Kyiv was very grateful to Western partners who were transferring weapons to Ukraine.

He also stressed that Ukraine would definitely regain its territories.

Earlier on June 15, U.S. President Joe Biden announced a $1 billion aid package to Ukraine.

German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht also said that Berlin would transfer three Mars II multiple-launch rocket systems to Kyiv.

Earlier, in a report published by the UK newspaper the Guardian on June 6, Ukrainian presidential aide Oleksiy Arestovich said to win the war with Russia, Ukraine needs at least 60 multiple launch rocket systems, not “the handful promised by Britain and the United States of America.”
