Following the death of 14 people in a helicopter crash in the nation’s capital, Kyiv, Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, declared that “no accidents happen in wartime.” Ukraine has not accused Russia of being involved, but Mr. Zelensky said the tragedy was a result of the war at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Denys Monastyrsky, the interior minister, died along with a number of his coworkers. He said that the terrorist state kills while the free world uses that time to think. The comment was taken as a request to Germany to expedite the delivery of its highly desired Leopard tanks.
According to reports, Berlin has refused to ship the vehicles unless the US agrees to send its own Abrams battle tanks. The UK recently pledged to send a number of its own tanks to Kyiv.
