“I spoke with the US President… We must stop the aggressor as soon as possible,” he wrote in a tweet. The call comes on the sixth day of the Russian war on Ukraine.
During the call, the two presidents talked about Western sanctions against Russia, and the assistance provided by the United States and other countries to Ukraine in the field of defense, according to Zelensky.
For its part, the White House said that “the impact of these sanctions is beginning to appear on the Russian economy.” Russia intensified its attack on the capital, Kyiv, and the second city, Kharkiv, in the east of the country.
Five people were killed and five others were injured in a Russian attack, on Tuesday, on a television tower in Kyiv, according to the Ukrainian authorities.
