Zelensky: Missile shortage looms for Ukraine

In an interview with Ukrainian television, Zelensky said that 25 Patriot defense systems were needed to fully defend Ukraine against Russian attacks from the air.

In recent days, he has regularly urged for more help from abroad. “The new air defense system could radically change the situation,” he said on Thursday. “It is absolutely unacceptable that many countries in the world are still thinking about how to combat terrorism, when it only requires a few political decisions.”

Weapons on credit

Zelensky says he is open to US arms aid on credit. He says it is better to get weapons on credit now than to get them for free in a year. 'We will accept any option' The idea of ​​weapons on credit comes from Donald Trump, who wants to return to the White House in November.

Republicans, to which Trump belongs, have been blocking the release of $60 billion in military aid to Ukraine for months. According to Zelensky, without American assistance, it will be difficult for Ukraine to achieve success on the battlefield and continue to defend itself.
