Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said on Sunday that his country needs an accelerated delivery of weapons and new types of weapons.
In his televised address, the President acknowledged that the situation in the eastern part of the Donetsk region is “very difficult” and stressed that the country needs an accelerated delivery of weapons and new types of weapons to counter the Russian attacks.
“The situation is very difficult. Bakhmut, Vuhledar and other areas of the Donetsk region – there are constant Russian attacks there,” Zelensky said in his evening video message. “Russia wants the war to drag on and exhaust our forces. Therefore, we must make time our weapon. We need to speed things up, speed up deliveries and open up new arms opportunities for Ukraine.
Zelenskyy also said that if Russia were allowed to participate in the 2024 Paris Olympics, it would demonstrate that “terror is acceptable to a certain extent”.
“Attempts by the International Olympic Committee to send Russian athletes back to the Olympics are attempts to tell the world that terror is acceptable to some extent,” Zelensky said in a televised address.
He said Russia should not be allowed to “use [Olympics] or any other sporting event as propaganda for their state aggression or chauvinism”.
