Good health to you, fellow Ukrainians!
We are finishing this day working in Odesa.
Dnipro region, Mykolaiv and Ochakiv... Now it's our Odesa region. Our combat medics, all our medical workers who save the lives of our soldiers and civilians, our adults and our children.
Today I had the honor to congratulate Ukrainian doctors and nurses, frontline medics on their professional holiday. I awarded the best ones. But I am grateful to everyone who stays in our cities and villages, in the frontline areas, who work on the frontline, on whom the life of Ukraine really depends. I am grateful to you!
In the morning, I held a meeting of the Staff. As always, we discussed key issues of our defense, protection of our skies and our cities. There were reports on the situation at the front and we are checking the "military commissars". I think you can see the state's reaction to the abuses of the "military commissars".
Mykolaiv has a lot of issues that need to be resolved for people, including in the regional hospital. The Minister of Health and the head of the regional administration heard everything.
Ochakiv - I thank our doctors working there. They are real heroes!
In Odesa, I also had the honor to award medical workers and thanked them for their work.
An important conversation also took place in the presence of the Minister of Health with Commander of the Medical Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Tetiana Ostashchenko. We talked about issues that are of great concern to our combat medics, our warriors. Issues on which lives depend. I expect the commander to work together with the community of combat medics, with volunteers and, on the other hand, with government officials to find the necessary solutions.
I listened to the report on the liquidation of the consequences of Russian strikes on Odesa and the region. Here, in Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral, which Russia tried to destroy, I feel that our people, our morale are still stronger. Stronger than the Russian terror.
We are looking for air defense systems to protect Odesa and our entire south. And I am grateful to everyone in the world who has already joined us in this endeavor!
One more thing.
Kyiv. Today there is minus one deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. That's fair.
I think it's also fair to say now: every intention of any official to go abroad, of any deputy, should be checked to the second. If someone really wants to take a break from working for the state, the state will also take a break from such people.
I thank everyone who is fighting for Ukraine! Thank you for the liberation of Staromaiorske. Congratulations again, guys!
Once again, I would like to congratulate our esteemed medical workers on their holiday. We are very proud of you!
Glory to Ukraine!
