Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, has accused European countries that continue to buy Russian oil of earning their money in other people’s blood.
In an interview with newsmen, President Zelensky singled out Germany and Hungary, accusing them of blocking efforts to embargo energy sales, from which Russia stands to make up to 326 billion dollars this year.
There has been growing frustration among Ukraine’s leadership with Germany, which has backed some sanctions against Russia but so far resisted calls to back tougher action on oil sales.
President Zelensky also reiterated calls for more weapons to be supplied to Ukraine, saying they were not getting supplies fast enough to defend themselves against Russia’s attack.
