In the framework of a working visit to the Kingdom of Denmark, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with leaders of Danish parliamentary parties and chairmen of committees of the Danish Folketing.
The Head of State thanked the representatives of political forces for their strong support in the struggle against Russian aggression.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy also expressed gratitude to the Folketing for establishing the Ukraine Support Fund and for the decisions to provide additional funding for its military component in the amount of USD 3.2 billion until 2028.
The President praised the MPs' support for the historic decision to transfer F-16 jets to Ukraine.
"I am grateful to all of you for your assistance in organizing the training of Ukrainian pilots and for agreeing to transfer F-16s used by your Armed Forces to Ukraine," the Head of State emphasized.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked the Folketing for its special attention to Ukrainians who have found refuge in Denmark from the war and for adopting a separate law that allows Ukrainian citizens to use the state system of social services and have access to the local labor market.
During the conversation with the members of the Folketing, representatives of Danish business and Ukrainian community, the President noted that despite the small size of the country, the Danes are people with big hearts.
"We are grateful for your help, for the great powerful and genuine support of a great country since the first days of the full-scale war. We will never forget it!" he said.
The Head of State also praised the leadership and courage of Prime Minister of Denmark Mette Frederiksen and thanked her team, the Danish Government and the entire society.
"There is a considerable distance between our countries, but there is no distance between our peoples. You have helped our people, the forced migrants, a lot. You welcomed them as your family. And this is a great victory for your great country," Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized.
Addressing the representatives of Danish business, he noted that Ukraine is looking forward to Danish investments after the victory.
"We are very happy when your business does not operate in Russia. I believe it is a privilege to lose money but not to lose your face," the President said.
