Ukraine appealed for more weapons, along with continued US support, to build on successes over the weekend in liberating territory from Russian control in the Kharkiv region.

Ukrainian armed forces also need armored vehicles and tanks “to get our victory as soon as possible,” Ihor Zhovkva, deputy chief of staff to President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, told Bloomberg Television. US support is crucial, the country’s president told CNN.
