Supplying Kyiv long-range weapons ‘depends only’ on US: Zelensky


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Friday it was “difficult” for Kyiv to fight Russia without long-range weapons and that the decision to supply them to Ukraine “depends only” on Washington.

“Without long-range weapons, it is difficult not only to carry out an offensive mission, it is difficult to conduct a defensive operation, to be honest. Very difficult,” Zelensky said on a visit to Prague.

“We are talking about (the delivery of) long-range systems with the United States, it depends only on them today,” he told reporters, adding that Ukraine was also in talks with Kyiv’s other Western allies.
