President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy is grateful to all citizens who do not panic despite the difficult information background, because this is a real manifestation of support for Ukraine. The President said this during the meeting with media representatives following the negotiations with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Kyiv.
"A citizen is not one who has a passport, but one who is in Ukraine today," the Head of State said.
The President stressed that it is especially important to support the country now, so he and his wife remain in Ukraine.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked all citizens who did not leave the country.
"Reliable people stay, citizens of Ukraine stay. I want to thank everyone," he said.
The Head of State also thanked the representatives of the diplomatic corps who continue to work in our country.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed that MPs should be in Ukraine at this time, as this will be an important signal for society.
"I personally would like to ask them to return to the country within 24 hours. It is a difficult moment, a moment of unity of our state," the President said.
He also noted that representatives of big business should also return to Ukraine, as their enterprises are located here.
"They were participants in privatization, the state also gave them something. I think it gave them a great chance. Bad apples will flee, citizens of Ukraine will stay," Volodymyr Zelenskyy summed up.
