PARIS (Reuters) – Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Wednesday said Germany’s recent push to send more Patriot air defence missiles – a key need in the country’s war against Russia – were helpful, but asked EU leaders to do more and stick to their commitments.

“I ask you to accelerate the implementation of our agreements with you – both on supplies and joint production of weapons and ammunition, and on financing relevant projects”, Zelenskiy told EU leaders gathered in Brussels according to an EU official.
