Ukraine wants more help – level 3

22-01-2024 07:00

Ukrainian President Zelenskiy spoke at Davos and urged the West to increase sanctions on Russia and enhance support for Kyiv to counter Moscow’s war efforts.

Expressing concern about Western hesitancy, he emphasized that Putin’s ambitions extend beyond Ukraine. Zelenskiy rejected freezing the conflict and stressed the need for proper enforcement of sanctions, including on Russia’s nuclear sector. EU and NATO leaders echoed his concerns, emphasizing continuous military and financial support for Ukraine.

Zelenskiy highlighted the strategic importance of aiding Kyiv, and he received positive signals for EU financial support and hoped for US aid approval. He urged unity against Russian aggression, emphasizing the broader implications beyond Ukraine.

Difficult words: hesitancy (unwillingness to decide), enforcement (ensuring compliance with rules or laws), strategic (relating to long-term goals and interests).
