Zelensky: Air defence is now the first priority

Apr 12, 2024

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has once again called for help in supplying Ukraine with the air defense equipment needed to protect cities from constant Russian strikes.

He made the statement following the Three Seas Initiative summit in Vilnius on 11 April, Yevropeiska Pravda reports.

The head of state called for concentrating all potential this year "to protect both Ukraine and the independence of every nation bordering Russia", as Moscow's threats "cover the entire space from Europe to Kazakhstan".


"I spoke about this at our summit today. And the first thing is air defense. We have an urgent need to protect Kharkiv, Odesa, Mykolaiv, Zaporizhzhia, and all our other cities from Russian strikes," Zelenskyy stressed.

He thanked the leaders who expressed their willingness to help with the acquisition of air defense systems.
