Force Russia to make peace, Zelensky urges West

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has urged Western leaders to pressure Russia into peace using "all means" necessary.

Speaking in Spain, Mr Zelensky said there needed to be "tangible coercion of Russia" , which was seeking to "destroy Ukraine and move on".

Mr Zelensky has long said he will not negotiate with Russia directly until Moscow's forces leave all Ukrainian territory, including Crimea.

His call, however, comes as Russia makes gains against Ukraine, with Kyiv suffering from a shortage of Western-supplied weapons.
