President Zelenskyy: We are doing our best to increase electricity imports

“I have instructed Deputy Prime Minister Fedorov to present me with an analysis of telecom operators at the next meeting of the Staff, showing what is being done to ensure communication during power outages and which telecom operators are not complying with the relevant decisions,” said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a traditional address to the Ukrainian nation on July 2.

I wish you good health, dear Ukrainians!

Today is an eventful day.

The visit of the Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán, to Ukraine – for the first time in many years and the entire period of war. And what’s more, it comes right after the beginning of Hungary’s EU Presidency. This is a clear signal of how important it is for all of us in Europe to stay united and take joint steps. We have talked a lot about the path to peace, specifically to a just peace, a lasting, and honest one. I thanked him for participating in the Peace Summit and for supporting the Communiqué. I described what we have already accomplished in our work with partners between the Summits, in preparations for the second Peace Summit. We have some good achievements, and more will follow. I have invited Hungary and Prime Minister Orbán to join the respective efforts. We also have good bilateral results. In general, we see that this is a completely different relationship between Ukraine and Hungary: concrete, and we take into account mutual interests. We agreed on various details – economic and political – to be addressed by our teams. And a very important thing is that we will outline our relations, our achievements in a new document – an agreement that will define good neighborliness for Ukraine and Hungary.

The second thing for today. I spoke with Mark Rutte, and today there was a change of Government in the Netherlands. Mark will continue to work in the North Atlantic Alliance. I thanked him for his support over these years: the Netherlands, without exaggeration, helped save thousands and thousands of lives of our people. Ukraine will always be grateful for that. I also wish the new Government of the Netherlands, the new Prime Minister, success and truly effective leadership.
