Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski has made a decisive call for the international community to strengthen sanctions against Russia and provide Ukraine with long-range missiles.

This statement comes in the wake of Russia's massive missile attack on Ukraine on January 2, 2024.

In his post on Twitter, Sikorski emphasized the need to respond to Russia’s aggression in a language that President Vladimir Putin would understand.

He highlighted the urgency of imposing tougher sanctions on Russia to prevent the country from manufacturing new weapons using smuggled components. Moreover, Sikorski stressed the significance of equipping Ukraine with long-range missiles, enabling it to target and destroy launch sites and command centers effectively.

Slovak President Zuzana Čaputová also commented on the situation, underlining the importance of supporting Ukraine in its defense against Russian aggression.

On January 2, Russia conducted a large-scale missile attack on Ukraine, resulting in missile fragments hitting various districts in Kyiv, including Pechersk, Obolon, Holosiivskyi, and Sviatoshynskyi. Kharkiv also reported hits. According to Valerii Zaluzhnyi, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, out of 99 missiles of various types launched over Ukraine, 72 were successfully destroyed.

In response to Russia's aggressive actions, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba is calling for a prompt and decisive response from Western countries.
