Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Tuesday asked the international community to cover an expected budget deficit of $38 billion next year for his war-torn country, according to AFP.

"At this very conference we need to make a decision on assistance to cover next year's budget deficit for Ukraine," Zelensky said via video-link at a reconstruction conference in Berlin. "It's a very significant amount of money, a $38 billion deficit," he added.
