President Zelenskyy: The more insane statements we hear from Moscow, the greater our force must be

“The more insane statements we hear from Moscow, the greater our force must be,” said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a traditional address to the Ukrainian nation on February 22.

I wish you health, fellow Ukrainians!

Today, the day began with a meeting of the Staff. Not only about the current operational situation on the frontline, but also about other strategic issues, including our country’s preparation for the transition to F-16s – there was a special report on this. All the parameters for the first batch of aircraft: specific delivery dates, the necessary technical and infrastructure support. The details are positive. This year, our Air Force will become stronger, and this is a fundamental task. Specifically, this means protection against Russian guided bombs and new capabilities on the frontline in general. Of course, today’s meeting also included reports from the Commander-in-Chief, intelligence, the Minister of Defense and other government officials responsible for armaments. Special attention was paid to Avdiivka and the southern areas.

Today, I met with representatives of our partner countries – members of the diplomatic corps working in Ukraine. It is very important that in our capital, in our country, normal diplomatic work continues, even routine work between Ukrainian diplomats and foreign representatives, between our institutions and international organizations. And I am grateful to every state, every leader whose representatives are in Ukraine and with Ukraine. This is a testament to faith in our country, respect for the Ukrainian people, and trust in our strength and ability to achieve Ukrainian goals. We talked, among other things, about the need for clear and principled cooperation for the sake of implementing the Peace Formula, for greater security for Ukraine and for each of our countries, and for the sake of Ukraine’s internal transformation. By the way, we are also working to expand our representation in the world. Last year, we opened new Ukrainian embassies in Africa and generally achieved a higher level of interaction with leaders and countries on the African continent. For this year, we aim to increase our engagement and potential for cooperation, particularly in Latin America.
