"The aggressor will be responsible for all the stolen assets of our state." Address of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed the people, talking about the next terrorist attacks by the Russian occupation army and about the stabilization of the energy system and the protection of our power plants.

"I wish you health, dear Ukrainians!

Today was a long and hard day.

Kherson Oblast — four policemen were killed during stabilization measures... Russian mines.

Among the dead was the chief of police of the Cherkasy region Mykhailo Kuratchenko, he was helping colleagues in the south. Explosive technician Ihor Melnyk. Dog breeder Serhiy Nenada. Vadim Perizhok, assistant of the Uman district police department on duty. Doctors are currently saving the lives of four more policemen.

Police forces along with all the defense forces of our state are now on the front line. And together with everyone they protect Ukrainians, together with everyone they suffer losses... My condolences.

Donetsk region - today the Russian army struck Kurakhovo, very cruel, absolutely calculated. Precisely for peaceful people. For ordinary people. On the market, elevator, gas station, bus station, on the residential building. The list of the dead so far includes ten people, many injured.

My condolences to relatives and friends... Eternal memory to all victims of Russian terror!

Held a meeting of the Stavka today. Commanders' reports, analysis of the situation in specific directions.

First of all, regarding the Donetsk region, Bakhmut districts and other hot spots. There is a very tough confrontation, every meter counts.

I thank all our guys who destroy the enemy right there every day, every night, every hour.

Of course, due attention was paid to Luhansk Region and Kharkiv Region at Stavka, there were reports on the situation in general and on the borders.

Energy is a constant item on our agenda both at the Stavka and at the government level.

He also held a meeting on the stabilization of the energy system and the protection of our power plants.

We are constantly increasing the generation and supply of electricity - we are adding more volume almost every day. But we should not forget - and everyone should not forget - that it is now impossible to restore 100% of the energy system, as it was before the beginning of the Russian energy terror. Need time. That is why most cities and districts maintain shutdown schedules.

As of this evening, the most outages are in Kyiv and the region, Lviv Region, Zhytomyr Region, Khmelnytskyi Region, Poltava Region, Vinnytsia Region and Zakarpattia. And I thank all our energy workers, repairmen, businesses, utility workers and local authorities who are doing everything they can to make things easier for people.

By the way, today is the Day of Local Self-Government. This is a holiday for all those who work with people directly and on whom almost everything in communities depends.

As in any government, in local self-government there are different people, different personal qualities and views. And today I thank all those people who, at their level, really protect their communities. Who can be trusted and to whom they come for help. Who is really taking care of the defense—within their responsibility—and who is preparing everything so that his or her community can get through this winter more easily.

I thank you and congratulate you on your professional day.

Today we have a very important result in France. The Supreme Court of France left in force the decision on recovery in favor of the Ukrainian Savings Bank from the aggressor state. The amount with accrued interest is almost 1,5 billion dollars.

This legal process has been going on since 2015. More than six years of struggle, tens of thousands of pages of legal documents, many hopes and no less skepticism expressed by some... But there is this victory for Ukraine. Russia will be responsible for all stolen assets of the Ukrainian state and companies.

This is the first victory for a state-owned company in the courts against Russia over seized Crimea, and I thank each and every one who secured this result.

Today, representatives of the Office and the government took part in a conference in America — a conference dedicated to the creation of a special tribunal regarding the crime of Russian aggression against Ukraine.

Even now, not everyone in the world agrees that this tribunal will work. But no matter what they say, we will do our part and definitely achieve a result for Ukraine and Ukrainians.

We are already preparing for the events of the second half of the week - on the international level. There will be important decisions for our defense. We do everything to make them stronger.

Thanks to all partners of our country! 

Glory to all who work for victory! 

Glory to each of our soldiers — to all those who earn their lives for Ukraine!

Glory to Ukraine!"
