Ukraine's president has told the world's finance ministers his country needs US $7 billion every month until the summer to keep functioning.

Volodymyr Zelensky also said they will need hundreds of billions of dollars to rebuild all this later.

He was addressing an International Monetary Fund and World Bank conference via video link from Kyiv.

The World Bank has estimated that about US $60 billion of physical damage has so far been inflicted on Ukraine.

Zelensky also said the global community needed to exclude Russia immediately from international financial institutions, including the World Bank, IMF and others.
