President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy had a meeting with Minister of Defense of the Republic of Estonia Hanno Pevkur, who is on a visit to Ukraine.

The Head of State thanked Estonia for its leadership in providing comprehensive, efficient and timely assistance to Ukraine to counter Russian ongoing full-scale aggression.

"I am grateful to your government, society, and everyone who stands by Ukrainians in the face of Russia's full-scale war. This is extremely important. We will never forget this. You helped us a lot, and we appreciate it. It was especially important in the first days of the Russian invasion," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

The President informed his interlocutor about the situation on the battlefield and priority needs of the Ukrainian defense forces. The parties discussed the possibilities of additional mechanisms of defense assistance to Ukraine from Estonia.

The leading role of the Republic of Estonia in launching the IT coalition for Ukraine during the recent Ramstein meeting was also noted.
