President Zelenskyy: More action, quicker success in forcing Russia into a just peace

“The recent authorization of strikes on Russian territory – near the border – has helped to destroy part of Russia’s terrorist capacity. But only a part,” said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a traditional address to the Ukrainian nation on June 23.

Dear Ukrainians!
At the moment, the electricity supply has already been restored in Kharkiv. Today, after the Russian bombs hit, a part of Kharkiv was left without electricity, the subway and electric transport were stopped. I thank all our repair crews, everyone involved in restoring the energy supply, and local and regional authorities. I want to thank them for their quick response and for helping people. Unfortunately, 12 people were wounded, unfortunately, one person was killed today. My condolences to their families, my condolences to all the close ones. Every day Kharkiv suffers from this Russian terror. And every day we repeat: Russian combat aircraft that carry out these strikes, not only on Kharkiv, but on our other cities, on our communities, on our frontline positions – Russian combat aircraft must be destroyed wherever they are, by all effective means available. It is also quite fair to attack the Russian airfields. And we need this joint decision with our partners – a security decision.

The recent authorization of strikes on Russian territory – near the border – has helped to destroy part of Russia’s terrorist capacity. But only a part. We need to fully protect people and lives from Russian terror – we need more long-range capabilities; we need proper weapons for Ukrainians. And we are working on this with our partners – we are doing everything to bring the decision closer. In general, the next weeks of June and the first half of July should be no less productive for Ukraine than May and the first half of June. We have already received a decision on new Patriots for Ukraine, and we are preparing a follow-up, working on the supply of more air defense systems. And long-range capability is now a question not only of what we can achieve on the battlefield, but also of when the war will end. The more we can do, the sooner we will succeed in forcing Russia into a just peace.
