KYIV, Feb 1 (Reuters) - A senior adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Wednesday talks were under way on securing longer-range missiles and attack aircraft from foreign partners to help repel Russian forces.

"Each war stage requires certain weapons. Amassing RF’s (Russia's) reserves in the occupied territories require specifics from (Ukraine) & partners," political adviser Mykhailo Podolyak wrote on Twitter.

"So: 1. There is already a tank coalition (logistics, training, supply). 2. There are already talks on longer-range missiles & attack aircraft supply."
