We will be able to fully protect the sky when our partners move past the aviation taboo. Such a statement made the President of Ukraine.
“The day began with an attack by Iranian drones. Most of them were shot down. Eleven out of fourteen.
Unfortunately, there were also hits. Three employees of the State Emergency Service in Khmelnytskyi were wounded, two were killed. My condolences to the families. The second drone hit just as the fire was being extinguished after the first hit.
In fact, that is why we need the aviation component of air defense – modern combat aircraft – to protect the entire territory of our country from Russian terror. Air defense is complete only when it is backed by aviation. Modern aviation.
Our pilots, together with our anti-aircraft gunners, together with all the warriors and specialists of our Air Forces, are already doing a great job. But we will be able to fully protect the sky when the aviation taboo in relations with our partners is lifted.
The elimination of consequences of the power grid accident in Odessa and the Odessa region lasted all day. There was a large-scale power outage, but the power supply was restored within a day.
As of this evening, all critical infrastructure and the vast majority of consumers have electricity. I am grateful to all power engineers and repair crews who ensured a quick result.
Ukraine demonstrated and will continue to demonstrate that our resilience is higher than anyone’s expectations”, - said Volodymyr Zelensky.
