image for Zelenskyy: Russia expects to prolong war, we have to speed things up

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said that Russia is trying to drag the war, and Ukraine should speed up the events and supply of weapons.

Quote: "We are doing everything to ensure that our pressure outweighs the occupiers' assault capabilities.

And it is very important to maintain the dynamics of defence support from our partners.

We must speed up the events, speed up the supply and opening of new necessary weaponry options for Ukraine.".

In some of its wars, Russia has lost in total less people than it loses there, in particular near Bakhmut," said Zelenskyy. »

Authored by

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning developer Kaiko is working on a “high profile THQ Nordic IP in the Action-Adventure genre,” according to a job listing.

Crucially, the listings state that it’s an “original title,” suggesting it won’t be another remaster of a THQ Nordic property and is more likely a new original sequel or reboot of a THQ Nordic property.
