Address by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, September 12, 2023

“A new historic step between Ukraine and the EU should take place this year, and all branches of government should work for this step,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Good health to you, fellow Ukrainians!

A report for the day.

First, the law on electronic declaration. As soon as the law was received from the Verkhovna Rada this morning, I signed a veto.

I expect a new vote – one with a positive outcome regarding the immediate opening of the register of declarations. This decision should be made already in September.

The same is true for the draft law on PEPs – politically exposed persons.

And this is a matter not only of the political responsibility of the parliament, but also of our negotiations with the European Union on accession.

A new historic step between Ukraine and the EU should take place this year, and all branches of government in Ukraine should work to make it happen.

Before all other meetings, I held a Military Cabinet meeting today. A special circle of participants.

We only discussed the situation at the front and our expectations for the near future. Strengthening of our brigades, our own production of weapons and ammunition in Ukraine and supplies from our partners. Important intelligence reports. We can clearly see what the occupiers are really preparing for and what our warriors should be ready for.

Today, Denmark has made a significant decision – the largest defense package for the entire period of a full-scale war and already the twelfth. This new package is worth more than $800 million. In terms of content, it is exactly what we agreed on with Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and her government team. A good reinforcement, thank you for it!
