Volodymyr Zelensky, the President of Ukraine, stated that the attitude of some countries that support Kyiv has changed. Addressing the West, he said that if aid to Ukraine does not continue, it will help Russia win.
In an interview with The Economist, the text of which was published yesterday, he told that he noticed a change in the attitude of some of his partners.
Zelensky remarked that “he began to doubt the sincerity of some Western allies when they say they will always support Ukraine”.
He further emphasized that Kyiv is ready for a long-term confrontation with Russia. “I have to be ready, my team has to be ready for the long war, and emotionally I am ready,” Ukraine’s president underlined.
Zelensky emphasized that he is going to talk to US President Joe Biden about receiving Atkmez missiles. The Pentagon also declared in its recent report that the United States has provided $44.4B in military aid to Ukraine since 2022.
This is when Sabrina Singh, the Pentagon’s deputy spokesperson on September 7 announced the new US military aid to Ukraine worth $600M.
