The democratic world must abandon Russian oil and completely block Russian banks from the international financial system, President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his daily video message early Thursday.

In a month and a half since the start of Russia's special military operation aimed at the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, more than 4 million people fled across the border of Ukraine, a quarter of the country's population was left homeless, many cities were turned into ruins. This gave rise to new Western restrictions on the Russian elite and the economy.
