(CTN News) – Despite international sanctions, the Russian army will have a hard time replenishing its arsenal of missiles, helicopters, and other military equipment, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said during a video address on Monday.
Despite the fact that the Russian army does not intend to slow down its use of missiles against Ukraine, Zelenskyy pointed out that the Russian army should have realized that restoring its missile stocks will prove extremely challenging in the face of even existing sanctions, “without imports, they cannot even do that.”. “And when all the loopholes that have been used to circumvent sanctions are closed, and even tougher sanctions are imposed, restoring Russia’s missile capabilities will be beyond the realm of possibility,” he said.

There is a similar process taking place with other Russian weapons as well. Russia will find it a challenge to produce new artillery pieces, planes, helicopters, and cruisers as a result of sanctions,” he said.
Zelenskyy Appeal To Germany For Weapon Supplies
In Zelenskyy’s words, the Russian Federation was intent on destroying the once-proud industrial power of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
He also renewed his calls for increased military shipments in the face of the escalating battle over the eastern regions.
Zelenskyy, in a thinly-veiled jab aimed at Germany, said the outcome of the upcoming battle will depend on those who have the weapons and ammunition we need but are holding them back.
In addition, he took a swipe at Russia’s renewed bombing campaign in Kharkiv, confirming the official figures that five people were killed in attacks on the city Sunday and 18 in the past four days.
During the call, Zelenskyy shared details about his conversation with IMF chief Kristalina Georgieva earlier in the day, saying that the two sides had agreed on some concrete measures to support Ukraine in the short and long term for the rebuilding of the country after the war.
