Russian oil is being paid for with blood money, says Zelensky – BBC News – Latest News Today
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has accused European countries that continue to buy Russian oil of “earning their money in other people’s blood”.
President Zelensky singled out Germany and Hungary, accusing them of blocking efforts to embargo energy sales, from which Russia stands to make up to £250bn ($326bn) this year.
He also called for more weapon support from the West, saying they “need them sooner and we need more of them”.
“The United States, the United Kingdom, some European countries – they are trying to help and are helping,” he said. “But still we need it sooner, sooner and faster. The key word is now.”
President Zelensky spoke exclusively to the BBC’s Clive Myrie from Kyiv.
