Volodymyr Zelensky said Moscow has received more than one million munitions from North Korea
The Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky assessed today from the capital of Estonia, where he is on a visit, that a truce in the war between his country and Russia would not lead to political dialogue and it would only benefit Moscow.
According to the president of Ukraine, Russia is in negotiations for the purchase of missiles from Iran, adding that Moscow has received more than a million rounds of ammunition from North Korea.
Zelensky arrived on the night of Wednesday to Thursday in Tallinn for the second stop of his tour of the Baltic countries, staunch allies of Kiev against Russia.

“It is a great honor to welcome good friends and allies,” Zelensky and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, Margus Tsachna, Estonia’s foreign minister, wrote on X this morning.
“We are sending a strong message Mrwe confirm to Ukraine that Estonia is firmly on its side and that together we will win this war!” he added.
At the first stop of his tour, Wednesday in Lithuania, Zelensky criticized the West’s reluctance to provide military and economic aid to Ukraine, which “only strengthens Russia’s boldness and power.”
“We have to pay attention to Putin’s rhetoric. It won’t stop. He wants to understand us completely”the Ukrainian president emphasized, estimating that in the event of his country’s defeat, other neighbors of Russia, including the Baltic countries, are at risk of being attacked.
These three former Soviet republics are now members of NATO and the EU and staunch supporters of Kiev.
Zelensky’s visit comes after several waves of intense Russian bombing against Ukraine since late December.
During his stay in Tallinn, the Ukrainian president will meet with his Estonian counterpart Alar Karis and Prime Minister Kaya Kalas, while he is expected to deliver a speech to the parliament.
