Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky says Russia is taking advantage of the slow delivery of Western weapons to go on the offensive, APA reports citing BBC.

His comments come after the US agreed a $61bn (£49bn) package of mostly military aid for Ukraine.

Mr Zelensky said some of the aid had started to arrive, but added that it needed to be delivered faster.

He was speaking alongside Nato chief Jens Stoltenberg, who said "it's not too late for Ukraine to prevail".

The comments come after authorities in the Black Sea port of Odesa said a Russian missile attack had killed four people and injured 32.

Odesa's regional head Oleh Kiper said three women and one man had died, and the injured included a four-year-old and a 16-year-old, as well as a pregnant woman. Civilian houses and infrastructure had been damaged, he said.

Earlier on Monday, Russia said it had taken a second village in two days in the course of its offensive in eastern Ukraine.

At a joint press conference in Kyiv, President Zelensky said: "The Russian army is now trying to take advantage of a situation when we are waiting for supplies from our partners, especially from the United States of America.

"And that is exactly why the speed of deliveries means stabilising the front."
