Zelensky Wins Erdogan Backing For Ukraine's NATO Bid

President Volodymyr Zelensky on Saturday got Turkey's crucial backing for Ukraine's NATO aspirations after getting cluster bombs from the US pledge that could inflict massive damage on Russian forces, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported.

Washington's decision to deliver the controversial weapons -- banned across a large part of the world but not in Russia or Ukraine -- dramatically ups the stakes in the war, which entered its 500th day Saturday.


Zelensky has been traveling across Europe trying to secure bigger and better weapons for his outmatched army, which has launched a long-awaited counteroffensive that is progressing less swiftly than Ukraine's allies had hoped.


He called the latest US arms package "timely, broad and much-needed," tweeting that it "will provide new tools for the de-occupation of our land."


US President Joe Biden admitted that supplying Ukraine with weapons capable of covering several football fields with hundreds of multiple small explosives was "a difficult decision."


He added: "And by the way, I discussed this with our allies." The Ukrainians are running out of ammunition."
