MUNICH (Reuters) – Italy is ready to offer more military aid to Ukraine, Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani said on Saturday.

“We are ready to do more” at the economic, political and military level, Tajani said at the Munich Security Conference.

He said Italy had so far approved eight support packages for Ukraine, with the latest one due to arrive in the coming days. Ukraine has been battling a full-scale Russian invasion for almost two years.
