Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, on Monday appeal for more weapons and maximum sanctions against Russia at Davos summit, lamenting that tens of thousands of lives would have been saved had countries acted faster.
Appearing by video-link, Zelensky delivered the headline speech to the first World Economic Forum to be held in the Swiss Alps in more than two years after the Covid pandemic derailed the event.
A Ukrainian lawmaker, Anastasia Radina, told newsmen that her country needs “NATO-style” weapons, including tanks and ground-based air defence systems.
Zelensky also called for an oil embargo on Russia, punitive measures against all its banks and the shunning of its IT sector, adding that all foreign companies should leave the country.
