President of Ukraine

All news

Ukraine and your countries have long been reliable partners and friends. Nothing will change that. Our ties will be strengthened as the crisis not only brings challenges but also opens up new opportunities. We greatly appreciate the help that your countries already provide. This is really important for us. We ask you to take further action to help us punish the aggressor and end this war.

On June 1, Deputy Head of the Office of the President Kyrylo Tymoshenko together with UNICEF Ukraine Representative Murat Sahin visited the Center for Support of Children and Families "Spilno" in Bucha. It was opened at the initiative of UNICEF in Ukraine.

The inevitability of punishment is a principle that Ukraine will definitely teach Russia. But first of all, we must teach it on the battlefield that Ukraine will not be conquered, that our people will not surrender, and our children will not become the property of the occupiers.

During the event, the President spoke in a video conference format with Ukrainian children temporarily staying in the Republic of Poland and with students of Drohobych Lyceum, among whom were residents of different regions of Ukraine.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted the exceptional support for our state by the Republic of Poland, which has manifested itself in many areas. In particular, this is unprecedented defense assistance, as well as support for Ukrainian citizens who were forced to leave for Poland to escape the war waged by Russia.

"I am convinced that if we get all the necessary weapons and the effective sanctions regime is strengthened, we will win. It will be a victory not only for Ukraine, it will be a victory for all our partners and friends," Andriy Yermak stressed.

The European Union is responding to Russia's aggression by gradually building up sanctions and gradually increasing arms supplies to Ukraine. It is too long and inefficient. We propose to change the approach. It is necessary to do what the Russians do not expect. A massive sanctions strike, intensified by the maximum number of heavy weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, will not only help save thousands of lives. It will also help avoid a protracted war, for which Russia has already prepared.
