President Zelenskyy: Revamping Ukraine’s security ties with world’s major powers

“We are creating for Ukraine a fundamentally new system of security relations with the world’s major powers,” said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a traditional address to the Ukrainian nation on February 13.

I wish you health, fellow Ukrainians!

A brief report for this day.

First of all, the frontline, and in particular Avdiivka, Kupyansk, and Lyman. Maximum attention, maximum support.

Commander-in-Chief Syrskyi and Defense Minister Umerov are currently on the ground, at the front, all day long. Today they visited all the hot spots of the frontline and reported on the situation. The existing problems are being resolved: manning the units, reinforcement, command and control. There will be reinforcement with drones and means of electronic warfare. Command positions will also be reinforced. A detailed report will follow later.

Secondly, a strategically important vote took place today in the United States. The Senate voted in favor of a package of further support for our country, our warriors, our efforts and democracy in general. I am grateful to every senator for making a morally strong choice. This choice is important not just for Ukraine, but for all nations whose independence is a target for Russian attacks – either now or in the future. Attacks planned for the coming years. Putin has never intended to limit himself to Ukraine alone – his goals are far broader. Hence, solidarity in defense must be even broader. The next step is a vote in the House of Representatives. This is extremely important. We anticipate an equally strong moral choice and a decision that will enter into effect, contributing to our common security.
