"Existing Sanctions on Russia are Painful"

International desk
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Friday that current sanctions on Russia are “painful” but not yet enough to stop the Russian military.

Zelenskyy called for “the democratic world” to ban Russian oil. While U.S. officials and U.S. President Joe Biden have authorized such a ban, Europe relies more heavily on Russian energy supplies, and the U.S. has been attempting to keep India from stepping up its utilization of Russian energy.

“As a general rule, the democratic world must accept that Russia’s money for energy resources is in fact money for the destruction of democracy,” Zelenskyy said in his nightly video address to his nation.

He likewise said: “The sooner the democratic world recognizes that the oil ban against Russia and the complete blockade of its banking sector are vital stages towards harmony, the sooner the war will end.”
