Zelensky thanks partners who helped Ukraine with air defense

President Volodymyr Zelensky has thanked all partners who helped Ukraine with air defense systems.

The Head of State stated this in his evening video address, Ukrinform reports.

“I thank all our partners who have helped Ukraine with air defense. These are different countries: the United States, Germany, France, Britain, Norway, Italy, Romania, Sweden, the Netherlands, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Poland, the Baltic States and other countries. Patriot, NASAMS, IRIS-T, RAVEN, Hawk, and other systems,” Zelensky said.

The President noted that he can't talk openly about everything now, but the Ukrainian sky shield is already more powerful compared to last year. It has greater capabilities, but unfortunately, it does not yet fully protect the entire territory, he said.

“And we are working to make it even better. Every country, every leader who helps us bolster our air defense helps protect lives. And I urge all Ukrainians, all those whose voice is heard in the world, our journalists, all those who support Ukraine in the world, to help boost the defense. To help! We are capable of overcoming the most difficult challenges. But only together, in unity, when we take care of each other and when millions of people help their defenders and their country. It is imperative to be united and grateful,” Zelensky stressed.

As reported by Ukrinform, President Volodymyr Zelensky said on November 9 that the Ukrainian authorities are working with all partners every day to get air defense systems for Ukraine in order to add strength to Ukraine’s sky shield virtually every week.
