A new meeting in the Ramstein format will be held soon. According to the preliminary information, it will take place offline from September 17 to 24.

This was stated by the Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksii Reznikov, on Andriana Kucher's YouTube channel.

He said the key issues at the Ramstein meeting will not change significantly. In particular, strengthening Ukraine's air defense will remain the top priority.

"More missiles, more systems, more radars, plus aviation as an element of air defense. The second issue is artillery and ammunition for it. The third thing is armored vehicles of all kinds," Reznikov emphasized.

Answering the question of whether it is possible to consider that the role of the meetings in Ramstein format has decreased, the minister said – "No, you cannot say that categorically."

For reference:

It should be noted that since April last year, the defense ministers of dozens of countries have been meeting to discuss the provision of various assistance to Ukraine, including tanks, air defense equipment, various military equipment, etc. The last such meeting took place on July 18.
