Following Ukraine’s struggles going up against Russian artillery in eastern Ukraine, Kyiv has requested more heavy weaponry from its Western allies to defeat the war. Specifically, the Ukrainian Government requested more NATO-standard multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS), howitzers, and tanks to help their forces repel further Russian advances in Severodonetsk.

The request was made through Twitter, where Ukrainian Presidential Adviser Mykhailo Podolyak made the large request public.

“I will be straightforward,” he said. “To end the war and throw Russia out of Ukraine, we need heavy weapons parity,” enumerating that they specifically needed 1,000 155mm caliber howitzers, 300 MLRS, 500 tanks, 2,000 units of armored vehicles, and 1,000 drones.
