“You will see the news for Ukraine. We prepare them with our neighbours in the EU. And also in those regions of Europe where our cooperation with the states has not yet been sufficient…”

“Next week is the time of important events for Ukraine. We will not lose a single day of preparation. We will not miss any result for Ukraine.”

Details: Zelenskyy said that he started the day [18 August] with a conference call: As always, the front is the first question. Military reports. The situation on the front line. Reports from government officials regarding the supply of weapons and ammunition. A report from the Security Service of Ukraine regarding military enlistment offices and collaborators.

Separately, the president heard the report of the Border Guard Service, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Defence Intelligence regarding the attitude towards our citizens – refugees in different countries, and regarding visa regimes.
