Brussels/IBNS: Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on Thursday urged NATO to provide Kyiv with unrestricted military aid as the Russian attack continues for a month now.

"To save people and our cities, Ukraine needs military assistance without restrictions. In the same way that Russia is using its full arsenal without restrictions against us," he told NATO representatives via video-link.

While he extended his thanks to members of the Western military alliance for providing the defensive equipment so far, he also appealed for offensive weapons.

"You can give us one percent of all your planes. One percent of your tanks. One percent!" Zelensky appealed.

The Ukrainian President also accused Russia of deploying phosphorus weapons, which spread a powder that ignites when in contact with oxygen and causes severe burns.

"This morning, by the way, phosphorus bombs were used. Russian phosphorus bombs. Adults were killed again and children were killed again," Zelensky said.

"The Alliance can once more prevent the death of Ukrainians from Russian strikes, from Russian occupation, by giving us all the weapons we need," he added.
