Secretary Austin Leads 11th Ukraine Defense Meeting

Group recommits to providing ammunition and resources for Ukraine

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin led the 11th meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group last week, where the group convened at the Ramstein Air Base in Germany.

The day-long event was co-led by Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov, where a number of briefings were given on the current state of Ukrainian defense efforts, battlefield progress, and status reports on equipment needs and usage. The U.S. and other European nations have recommitted to providing adequate ammunition supplies to meet the demands required for Ukrainian defense.

“Our common efforts have made a huge difference to Ukraine’s defenders on the battlefield,” Secretary Austin said. “For more than a year, Ukraine’s forces have defended their country and their fellow citizens. But they’ve also defended the basic principle that autocrats don’t just get to assault their smaller neighbors. And the valor and skill of Ukraine’s troops have inspired the world.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Austin to seek God’s discernment as he heads the U.S. Defense Department.
  • For U.S. officials and allied leaders as they continue their commitment to support Ukraine.
