President Zelenskyy: We are creating new security architecture for Ukraine

“We are creating a new security architecture for Ukraine that will help in the long run,” said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a traditional address to the Ukrainian nation on February 15.

I wish you health, fellow Ukrainians!

The summary of the day.

First, I would like to thank all our defenders of the sky. Another Russian missile attack was repelled. In total, more than 20 missiles of various types were used, with a significant number being shot down. I am grateful to all the servicemen of the Air Force, all our anti-aircraft gunners, and mobile firing groups. I am grateful to everyone who ensures the effectiveness of air defense and electronic warfare. And soon we will further reinforce our defense against Russian terror.

Secondly, today I held several preparatory meetings in the run-up to our international activities. We are now on our way.

Important meetings with partners are planned. There will be new agreements. We are doing everything to make them effective for Ukraine, and I am sure it will be so. We are creating a new security architecture for our country that will help us not just here and now, but in the long run. And this is something that Ukraine has never had, although it has always needed it.

Third, a meeting on the border situation with Poland. I instructed the Prime Minister of Ukraine to immediately hold a conversation with his Polish counterpart.

We in Ukraine view what has happened and is happening to our citizens and Ukrainian cargo as an obvious violation of the principles of solidarity. Ukrainian grain on the asphalt is not just a few dramatic shots. This is evidence of how emotions can become dangerous. We have to defend the good neighborliness and solidarity that are changing the history of the whole of Europe for the better. And together with Poland, we must establish a unified stance towards the imports of Russian grain and other Russian goods to European countries in order to protect our societies and specifically farmers, both Ukrainian and Polish. And we must always come to an agreement with each other – Ukrainians and Poles – so that our common enemy in Moscow cannot turn conflicts in our border area against the economy, borders and sovereignty of each of us.
