Boris Johnson: Putin warned him with missile attack in pre-war call

(MENAFN) Ukraine is pushing its partners for faster weapons supplies as intense fighting continues in the eastern Donetsk region.

After a weekend of invasions on the cities of Kharkiv and Kherson and current fights around Bakhmut in Donetsk, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated Sunday that “Russia hopes to drag out the war, to exhaust our forces. So we have to make time our weapon. We must ... speed up the supply and opening of new necessary weaponry options for Ukraine.”

Ukraine’s partners agreed last week to supply the nation with heavy battle tanks, with Kyiv then pressing for fighter jets as well. One Ukrainian administration advisor was reported saying Saturday that “negotiations” were happening over the chance of sending more aircraft.

Germany’s President Olaf Scholz claimed over the weekend that fighter planes would not be sent to Ukraine, on the other hand, informing a German newspaper that “the question of combat aircraft does not arise at all,” Scholz updated the Tagesspiegel newspaper in an interview published Sunday.
