“Russia wants the war to drag on and exhaust our forces. So we have to make time our weapon,” Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy says.
Ukraine needs more weapons: Zelenskiy
Russian missile strikes have killed three people in the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson while fighting raged in the eastern Donetsk region where Russia again shelled the key town of Vuhledar, Ukrainian officials say.
President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said Ukraine faced a difficult situation in Donetsk and needed faster weapons supplies and new types of weaponry, just days after allies agreed to provide Kyiv with heavy battle tanks.
“The situation is very tough. Bakhmut, Vuhledar and other sectors in Donetsk region – there are constant Russian attacks,” Zelenskiy said in a video address late on Sunday.
“Russia wants the war to drag on and exhaust our forces. So we have to make time our weapon. We have to speed up events, speed up supplies and open up new weapons options for Ukraine.”
