President Volodymyr Zelensky said Ukraine desperately needs more air defence systems to shoot down Russian missiles and drones.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, he said the US and Europe have helped in the fight against Putin’s forces – but "it’s not enough".
He insisted Ukraine would fight on but warned victory would only be possible if allies like the UK, Europe and America remained united behind him.
China also has a key role to play pressuring Russia to halt its onslaught and withdraw its troops from Ukraine, Zelensky added.
The president said his country is "staying strong" but his troops "need more successful results on the battlefield".
He said the first few months of the Ukraine war were the most difficult when his country came under attack "every minute" from Putin’s ruthless forces.
The 45-year-old hailed Ukraine’s success in Crimea and the Black Sea – but added "this is not a movie" and the success of the land offensive "depends on many things".
He revealed that he’s "ready" to sit down with Donald Trump if he’s elected as US president and hear his "peace formula”.
