Zelenskyy needs missile defense

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky made a plea for the country’s allies to send it air defense systems in response to continued Russian missile attacks.

Zelensky made a speech addressed to the Ukrainian people and the world on Saturday as the Russia-Ukraine war reached four full months. He said countries issuing punishing sanctions on Russia is not enough, and air defense systems are needed more in Ukraine than “anywhere else in the world.”

“But it’s not us who will be overpowered, we will overpower them,” Zelensky said. “No Russian missiles, no strikes can break the morale of Ukrainians. And each of their missiles is an argument in our negotiations with partners.”

Zelensky said 45 Russian missiles had struck Ukraine in the past day with the goal of demonstrating that the Russian army will succeed in capturing the country. He said Russia was originally planning to conquer Ukraine within a few days, and the show of force with missiles will not make any strategic difference.
