"We are preparing good long-range things so that the occupiers feel Ukrainian strength." Address of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi

The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, addressed the people, talking about a thorough analysis of the recent attacks against our country by missiles and drones and about the signing of the law on the state budget for the next year.

"I wish you health, dear Ukrainian men and women!

I just held a meeting of the Stavka — a special, long, detailed one. The first is fortification. We significantly strengthen. There were detailed reports at all levels: the General Staff, the Ministry of Defense, the Prime Minister, the regional authorities, the commanders of the OSU. All finances are there. All solutions are there. There should be full relevant work in communities. Everything is absolutely detailed - our state will definitely have enough mines and concrete. More speed and efficiency are needed, and whoever is responsible for this has clear tasks.

There was also an important analysis of recent attacks against Ukraine — missiles, massive drone strikes. We analyzed the defense tactics of our air defense. A clear need is the development and strengthening of our mobile fire groups, as well as all the most effective air defense systems. The work of "patriots" and "nasams" was analyzed separately - everything is very effective, I am grateful to the partners who help us with these systems. The Air Force Commander and other relevant commanders, the Ministry of Defense have the necessary credentials.

There were, of course, reports of commanders on all front lines. Special attention is paid to Donetsk areas: Avdiyivka, Maryinka, Bakhmut district. There were the most intense combat clashes that day. I thank all our soldiers for their strength and resilience. Buyer direction — I would like to especially note the maintenance of our positions. We also discussed our actions in the southern directions.

Today I also held a separate meeting with the Minister of Strategic Industries of Ukraine, which can be called optimistic. We are preparing, in particular, good long-range things so that the occupiers feel Ukrainian strength.

And one more.

He signed the law of Ukraine on the state budget for the next year. It is obvious that its main priority is protection against Russian aggression. But at the same time, we take into account the social needs of our people and fully fulfill the social obligations of our state. In a time of full-scale war, it is extremely important that every citizen of ours who needs government support receives it. And everyone who is currently creating jobs, who maintains business and even develops it, everyone who is in Ukraine and with Ukraine, works honestly and supports others, supports both our defense and our approach to Ukrainian goals. Protect and strengthen our independence, protect our people, restore a normal, dignified life - as much as possible. I thank everyone who fights and works for this! Glory to all Ukrainian soldiers! Glory to our powerful people!

Glory to Ukraine!"
