Ukraine must obtain all the weapons necessary to drive out the Russian occupiers as soon as possible and liberate Ukrainian cities.
The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his video speech, reports a correspondent of Ukrinform.
“I insist once again: Ukraine must obtain all the necessary weapons to drive the occupiers out of our land as soon as possible, to liberate our cities. And if we had already gotten what we needed – all those planes, tanks, artillery, anti-missile and anti-ship weapons, we could have saved thousands of people,” Zelensky said.
According to the President of Ukraine, he does not blame world leaders. He blames only the Russian army.
“But you could have helped. I will continue to say this in front of everyone on whom the decision on arms for Ukraine depends,” Zelensky stressed.
A reminder that settlements such as Irpin, Bucha, Hostomel and the entire Kyiv region were liberated from Russian invaders. Mass killings of civilians have been recorded in the liberated areas.
Victims of war crimes committed by Russian forces include raped women whose bodies they tried to burn, as well as slain local government officials, children, the elderly and men. Many have their hands tied, there are signs of torture and many people have been shot in the back of the neck.
