Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said during a visit to the Czech Republic on Friday that Kyiv needed long-range weapons form the United States to fight Russian forces that have invaded his country.

“Without long-range weapons it is difficult not only to carry out an offensive mission but also to conduct a defensive operation,” he told a joint press conference with Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala.

“First of all, we are talking about long-range systems with the United States and it depends only on them today.”
