Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky has rubbished reports suggesting he was willing to surrender to the Russian forces.

Zelensky said the suggestions are a “childish provocation.”

A banner had appeared on a Ukrainian newscast saying Zelensky was calling on his people to lay down their weapons, CNN reports.

“I can only ask the Russian military to give up arms and return home,” Zelensky said in a video statement.

“We are home already, we are defending our land, our children. We are not going to give up any arms until our victory.”

Meanwhile, President Biden announced $800 million in additional security assistance to Ukraine.

Biden made the announcement during remarks from the White House on Wednesday.

This brings the total to $1 billion in aid announced in just last week.
