Zelensky: Sanctions should come quicker than Russia adapts

Volodymyr Zelensky is convinced that new sanctions against Russia should be introduced faster than Russia adapts to such restrictions.

The president stated this during a joint press conference with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida of Japan, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Japan applied 18 packages of sanctions against Russia, against Russian aggression. And the new sanctions packages should continue this path of restoring global security and reducing the potential of Russian terror. Sanctions should come faster than Russia is able to adapt to them," Zelensky said.
