Zelenska

First lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska reacts Wednesday at a World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, after hearing news that a helicopter had crashed into a kindergarten in Ukraine, killing more than a dozen people.

DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) — Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told political leaders at the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos that supplies of Western weapons must come quicker than Russia’s attacks, urging the world to move faster because “tragedies are outpacing life; the tyranny is outpacing democracy.”

Zelenskyy, speaking by video link from Kyiv, said the world needs to react more rapidly to challenges like global security, climate change, hunger and energy, warning that in the war, “the time the free world uses to think is used by the terrorist state to kill.”
