Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke in detail about what Ukraine needs to protect our cities and help the military. The leaders discussed ways to increase production of needed weapons in both countries.

"Air defence is very important. This is a very big challenge for us. You know that this morning Kharkiv, Odesa, Zaporizhzhia, Kyiv region and other regions of Ukraine were attacked by missiles again. That is why air defence is the number one issue for us," the Head of State noted.

The Lithuanian President also stressed the need to join efforts of international partners to supply Ukraine with weapons and ammunition.
