We need modern combat aircraft to protect the entire territory of Ukraine from Russian terror, said the President of Ukraine in his night address.
“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.
Today, I held several meetings with representatives of the government and security agencies. In particular, a meeting with Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Vasyl Malyuk. We discussed current issues and our steps to protect the state in the near future.
We will not leave any chance to any internal threats, just as we don’t leave it to external ones.
Of course, I am constantly in touch with our commanders. Special attention to the situation in the east, of course, in the Donetsk region. Bakhmut direction – the situation is getting more and more difficult. The enemy is constantly destroying everything that can be used to protect our positions, to gain a foothold and ensure defense. Our warriors defending the Bakhmut sector are real heroes”, - said Volodymyr Zelensky.
