Ukraine needs weapons, finances and sanctions against Russia to win the war
Ukraine needs three elements to win the war: weapons, finances and sanctions against Russia, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal told NBC News.
“Weapons will allow us to continue a successful counteroffensive with the support of our friends. But we also need sanctions because Russia gets enough money from the sale of oil and gas. We need more effective sanctions so that Russia has less money for terrorist activities,” he said
Shmyhal also said that the whole world saw Ukraine’s military successes in the northern regions of the country, in the Kharkiv region, as well as successful operations in the Kherson region.
“We will continue to do this, we have no other choice. For us, victory in this war is a matter of the existence of our people,” Shmyhal said.
He emphasized that Ukraine also asks its partners to recognize Russia as a terrorist state, because what the Russians are doing in Ukraine is “genocide, acts of terror at all levels.”
“We saw Bucha, the situation in Izium is the same. Mass burials, bombings, they kill civilians – women, children, bomb civilian targets, in particular the Zaporizhzhia NPP,” Shmyhal said.
