Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has expressed fears of a drop in US financial and military assistance. Meanwhile, Russia struck an industrial site in central Ukraine with a missile. DW has the latest.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on Berlin to rally EU partners to provide his country with more aid, amid growing concerns that help from the US, the biggest contributor, could end. 

US President Joe Biden faces a Republican blockade on further support for Ukraine.

Responding to the uncertainty, Zelenskyy told German public broadcaster ARD that most US politicians supported Kyiv, and that resistance to the aid was coming from merely “individual Republicans.”

However, he did push for more action from Berlin.

Meanwhile, a Russian missile hit an industrial site in Ukraine’s central district of Kremenchuk, the regional governor said.
