President `s assistant USA National Security Officer Jake Sullivan spoke personally by phone with the Italian Prime Minister’s diplomatic adviser, Giorgi Meloni. This is reported by La Repubblica, citing its own sources.

Sullivan urged Rome in the shortest possible time to deliver to Kyiv one training anti-aircraft missile system SAMP-T. The modernization of this weapon has been going on for several months.

Italy allegedly behind the scenes promised the White House that it would send additional weapons to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. At the same time, there was no official statement, and, probably, Washington does not like this very much.

A little earlier, co-chairman of the Social Democratic Party of Germany Lars Klingbeil said that Berlin would not unilaterally send Leopard tanks to Ukraine.

Earlier it became known that the United States, France and Germany will increase military assistance to Kyiv. More about it read in the material of the Public News Service.
