War in Ukraine: Zelensky criticizes delays in arms deliveries
Steph Deschamps / April 18, 2022
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Sunday night criticized delays in arms deliveries to his country. Every delay in arms, every political delay is a permission for Russia to take the lives of Ukrainians. This is how Russia interprets it. This should not be the case in reality, he said in his daily video address.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky accused Russia on Sunday of wanting to destroy the entire eastern region of Donbass, promising that everything would be done to defend it, starting with the strategic port of Mariupol where the encircled military is called upon to fight to the bitter end. Russian soldiers are preparing for an offensive in the east of our country in the near future. They literally want to complete and destroy the Donbass, Zelensky hammered in a video message.
The last Ukrainian defenders of Mariupol, a port city in southeastern Ukraine that has been under siege for weeks, are still holding parts of the city and will fight to the bitter end, Prime Minister Denys Chmygal warned in an interview broadcast Sunday by the U.S. channel ABC.

The situation in Mariupol remains as bad as it can be. Simply inhumane, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a video message posted Saturday night. This is what the Russian Federation has done. Did deliberately. Russia is deliberately trying to destroy anyone in Mariupol.
The Ukrainian authorities announced on Sunday the suspension of humanitarian corridors for the evacuation of civilians from eastern Ukraine, due to a lack of agreement with the Russian army on a halt to the shooting.
At least five people were killed and 13 injured Sunday in a series of strikes on Kharkiv, a major city in northeastern Ukraine, emergency services told AFP.
