President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a meeting with Minister of Defense of Denmark Morten Bødskov and Minister of Defense of Estonia Hanno Pevkur.

The Head of State expressed gratitude to Denmark and Estonia for consistent financial, humanitarian and defense aid to our country since the first days of the full-scale war with Russia.

"Your countries supported and continue to support Ukraine at all difficult stages of our resistance to Russian aggression and occupation," noted Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

He separately thanked Estonia for allocating aid to Ukraine in the amount of 0.8% of the country's GDP.

"You have supported us very powerfully. This is an example of a small country that is a great state. The Ukrainian people and I are extremely grateful for this," said Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The President also noted Denmark's significant contribution to strengthening Ukraine's defense capabilities by providing the necessary assistance and creating a new effective format - the conference of allies in support of Ukraine in Copenhagen.

The Head of State emphasized the importance of further assistance to the Ukrainian army from Estonia and Denmark: "Strengthening our army directly with weapons has become our biggest priority. The resilience and endurance of our state, security in Europe depend on this. It is extremely important that you strengthen Ukraine in the security and military dimensions, supplying us with the weapons we need right now to de-occupy our territories."

During the meeting, it was emphasized that today Ukraine is fighting not only for its freedom, but also for the future of the whole of Europe.

The President also separately thanked the leadership of Denmark and Estonia for the hospitable attitude and assistance to Ukrainians who were forced to leave the country due to the war.
