Ukraine’s president said his country’s lack of access to weapons was empowering Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Unfortunately, keeping Ukraine in an artificial arms deficit, especially in the absence of artillery and long-range capabilities, allows Putin to adapt to the current intensity of the war,” he said in a speech at the Munich Security Conference.
