Ukraine President, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, has declared that victory could be near for his country as Russia has become bankrupt.
Zelenskyy said this on Sunday night during an address that he was beginning to see a potential avenue to victory but that they would not let up in their struggle with the Russian military or in seeking international support to cripple Russia economically.
"The occupiers still do not want to admit that they are in a dead end and their so-called 'special operation' has already gone bankrupt," he said.
"But the moment will surely come when the Ukrainian people will force the invaders to fully recognise reality."
"This week, as always, there will be a lot of international activity in which I will take part," the Ukrainian president continued.
"The key is weapons and financial support for Ukraine. Finances not only to maintain stability now, but also to begin rebuilding what Russia has ruined."
He said Ukraine is also focused on securing an oil embargo against Russia, as Kyiv continues to urge countries to find energy elsewhere.
"We are also working to strengthen sanctions on Russia. Partners need to make decisions that limit Russia's ties to the world every week. The occupiers must feel the rising cost of war for them; feel it constantly," Zelenskyy said.
He added, "No matter how hard Moscow tries to disrupt this decision, the time of Europe's dependence on Russian energy resources is coming to an end. And that can’t be changed."
