Ukraine on Friday urged the West to “get serious” about curbing Russia’s arms production by cutting off the supply of key parts to Moscow.

“The West must get serious about strangling Russia’s ability to produce weapons. According to some data, up to 95% of the foreign-produced critical components found in Russian weapons destroyed in Ukraine come from Western countries,” Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said in a social media post.
