The US is leading the charge on global sanctions against Russia, while EU nations have sometimes shown a lack of unity on the matter, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said.
“So far I think that the United States of America is the accelerator of the sanction policies and I think they do more than any other country,” Zelensky told Fox News on Saturday.
“This is the way it should be because they are the most powerful country right now. I see the same support with respect to sanctions from the United Kingdom.”
The president said the EU needs to form a “united position” on the matter. “They don’t have it with respect to certain sanctions,” he noted.
Zelensky argued that the West should continue ramping up the pressure on Moscow and carefully assess which measures are working and which are not.
“You know, Russia – when they get some sanctions, each day they are finding a way to circumvent [them],” he said.
