Now, in Ukraine, on our land, in our sky, it is being decided whether freedom and civilization will retain global leadership in this century. Such a statement made the President of Ukraine.
“First, I thank our Air Force and all the defenders of the sky for repelling another night raid by Russian drones.
Again and again, I thank our warriors for every downed Shahed, for every downed Russian missile. Because it always means saved lives, saved infrastructure.
Second, unfortunately, there were hits, unfortunately, there were falling debris with the corresponding consequences, unfortunately, there were losses... My condolences!
It is very, very important to take air raid alerts into account and not to take them carelessly.
I want all the local authorities responsible for specific communities and territories to hear me now.
Shelters in cities should be accessible. People need to understand when and how the number and availability of shelters will increase.
This is the responsibility of specific officials, and it is a specific responsibility.
Third, we continue to consolidate our partners to make Ukrainian air defense as effective as possible. Russian terror must be defeated every day and every night, in every region of Ukraine, in the skies of every Ukrainian city and village. When any attack by Russian terrorists ends in failure for the terrorists, their defeats will become a source of our long-term security.
Now, in Ukraine, on our land, in our sky, it is being decided whether freedom and civilization will retain global leadership in this century. Decided by us, together with America, together with Europe, together with all our allies and partners. I thank everyone in the world who helps us!”, - said Volodymyr Zelensky.
