Expedited talks are under way among Kyiv and its allies about Ukraine’s requests for long-range missiles that it says are needed to prevent Russia from destroying Ukrainian cities, said Mykhailo Podolyak, a Political Adviser to Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, Reuters reported.

“Ukraine needs the US-made ATACMS missile, which has a range of 297 kilometers”, Volodymyr Zelenskiy said in his nightly address.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky also said that he put into effect new sanctions on “185 legal entities and individuals that Russia uses to transport personnel and military equipment by railroad.” “Their assets in Ukraine are blocked, and their existing property will be used for our defense", said President Zelenskiy.

Volodymyr Zelensky insists that Russia be excluded from the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. He wrote a letter to the presidents of leading international sports federations with a call to reconsider the decision of the International Olympic Committee to allow the return of Russian athletes at international competitions.
