President of Ukraine holds meeting with Minister of Internal Affairs

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Denys Monastyrsky, who returned from the city of Vinnytsia.

The Minister of Internal Affairs reported to the Head of State about the consequences of the missile attacks on the city by the Russian army.

A total of 23 people have been killed in Vinnytsia, including three children, due to the criminal actions of the aggressor. Some 197 victims turned to health care institutions. Four people remain missing.

Monastyrsky also briefed the President on the shelling of the city of Mykolaiv, where two people have been injured in an attack on the educational building of the Pedagogical University by four missiles. Four more missiles struck the seven-story building of the National Shipbuilding University.

"Russia is behaving like a terrorist state, targeting civilians. We will do everything to find and punish those who give criminal orders and those who obey them," Zelenskyy said.

The President and the Minister of Internal Affairs discussed security issues, including the introduction of the 112 number as a single system of assistance to citizens, the introduction of a biometric identification and verification system based on fingerprints and facial recognition, which should ensure the fastest possible solving of crimes and the creation of a safe environment for citizens.

Particular attention was paid to the implementation of the Unified Weapons Register with full functionality, which will bring the interaction of citizens and police authorities to a qualitatively new level in the matter of civilized legal circulation of weapons in Ukraine.
