“The situation is very tough. Bakhmut, Volendar and other sectors in the Donetsk region – there are continuous Russian attacks,” Zelensky said in his videotaped speech overnight.

Ukraine faces a “very hard” situation in the eastern region of Donetsk, and needs to have faster arms supplies and new types of weapons to withstand Russian attacks, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Sunday, appealing to the West.

“The situation is very tough. Bakhmut, Volendar and other sectors in the Donetsk region – there are continuous Russian attacks,” Zelensky said in his videotaped speech overnight.

“Russia wants the war to continue and to exhaust our forces. So we have to make time our weapon. We have to speed up events, speed up supplies and open up new weapon options for Ukraine.”

Zelensky criticizes efforts to allow Russia to return to the Olympics

Ukraine’s president also said that allowing Russia to compete in the 2024 Paris Olympics was tantamount to indicating that “terrorism is somehow acceptable”.

“The International Olympic Committee’s efforts to bring Russian athletes back to the Olympics are efforts to tell the whole world that terrorism is somehow acceptable,” Zelensky said.

The Ukrainian president also stressed that Russia should not be allowed to “use (the Games) or any other sporting event as propaganda for its aggression or state chauvinism.”
