The President of Ukraine, his Office and all branches of government and local self-government bodies are constantly working to support regions that have found themselves in a difficult situation due to the Russian invasion. This was stated by Head of the Office of the President Andriy Yermak at a meeting of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities under the President of Ukraine, which was held as a video conference.
"I would like to say words of support to those regions that are in the most difficult situation today. These are Donetsk, Luhansk, Mykolaiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv, Kherson, Zaporizhia regions, as well as, of course, the city of Mariupol – its inhabitants, its defenders. Know that we are with you," he said.
Yermak thanked representatives of the partner countries who took part in the Congress both attending it in person and by a video link.
"Today, we have the unprecedented support of our partners. It has never happened before in the history of one country that is struggling to be supported by the world," the head of the Office of the President said.
He said that a meeting of the presidium of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities under the President is to take place in a week.
"Congress is working, the country is alive, the country is struggling. And we will definitely win," Yermak said with confidence.
