FM Kuleba: Ukraine, United States discuss different options for strengthening missile defense.

During the visit to Washington, the Ukrainian side discussed various options for purchasing or obtaining technology to strengthen air and missile defense.

"In the United States, we really raised the question of how America can help Ukraine strengthen its air and missile defense. In this regard, various options of technologies that Ukraine can get or purchase from the United States or with their assistance were discussed," Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba said at an online briefing, answering a question about whether there is a real chance to get the Iron Dome missile defense system, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He also assured that the issue of strengthening Ukraine's defense capabilities is constantly on the agenda of the Ukrainian authorities.

As reported, the bill of the U.S. House of Representatives envisages greater military assistance to Ukraine through the transfer of new weapons systems, including the potential transfer of the Iron Dome missile defense system.

Earlier in May, Defense Minister Andriy Taran said the Ministry considered purchasing a missile defense system of the Iron Dome type.
