Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has called on international allies to accelerate deliveries of weapons and munitions to soldiers fighting on the front lines as Russian troops continue to make significant gains.

In an address on Tuesday, Zelensky said, “We need a significant acceleration of supplies to enhance tangibly the capabilities of our soldiers. We are very much counting on prompt deliveries from the United States. These supplies must make themselves felt in disrupting the logistics of the occupiers, in making them afraid to base themselves anywhere on occupied territory and in our strength.”

Meanwhile, the US has indicated that weapon supplies have begun to reach Ukraine after delays caused by prolonged congressional debates over aid to Ukraine. 

Adding to the urgency, Ukraine’s top commander, Oleksander Syrskyi, reported that Russian objectives include capturing the critical town of Chasiv Yar, aiming for a significant military achievement to mark the May 9 commemoration of the Soviet victory in World War Two.
