Zelenskiy says latest EU sanctions against Russia not enough

STORY: "This is not enough and I am telling my partners this frankly. Russia must feel a much higher price for the war to force it to seek peace," he said in a late-night video address.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen accused Russia of "blackmailing" the European Union over energy, as she unveiled a plan on Wednesday to slash gas demand in the bloc ahead of a feared cut-off of deliveries by Russia as winter approaches.

Russia, the world's largest gas exporter, has denied Western accusations of using its energy supplies as a tool of coercion, saying it has been a reliable energy supplier.
