He also noted that the main focus was on the frontline situation.

"The reports were detailed, covering every direction, our defensive operations and active actions in general. Everyone in Ukraine knows where the intensity is currently the highest – Avdiivka, Marinka, Kupiansk direction, southern directions – the highest attention to each," Zelensky said.

In addition, he said that the defense of Ukraine against Russian air terror was discussed at the meeting - both at border cities and frontline positions.

Zelensky emphasized that Ukraine was working to increase the number of air defense systems, providing appropriate ammunition for protection against Russian aircraft and missile strikes.

"Control in the sky is, in many ways, a response to control on the ground," he said.
