When can the latest military pledges to Ukraine make a difference on the battlefield? | DW News
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has visited military personnel at the frontline in the eastern Donbas region. His visit came as Russian air strikes killed several people in Ukrainian cities near Kyiv. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has warned Western countries they'll need to support Ukraine for a long time. The EU already has already agreed to send Kyiv a million rounds of ammunition within the next 12 months.
Kyiv says up to 13-thousand Ukrainian troops have been killed since the start of Russia's invasion. The true number can only be guessed at - in the chaos of war, many deaths can't be properly documented, as bodies can't be recovered. The soldiers registered as 'missing' leave behind loved ones desperate for news and unable to grieve.
We speak to Ihor Zhaovkva, President Zelenskyy’s top foreign policy advisor and the deputy head of the president’s office.
