Zelensky: We are working with team to secure delivery of several more Patriot systems

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has thanked Romania for the decision to transfer a Patriot air defense system and noted that the work on deliveries of several more systems is underway.

He said this in a video address, Ukrinform reports.

“I thank Romania for the decision to transfer the Patriot system to Ukraine – this is a truly powerful step. As a result, there will be greater security throughout our region, for all our neighbors. For Moldova, for the Baltic states, for Romania as well. We are now capable of defeating Russia's imperial ambitions, and this will bring peace and confidence back to our entire Europe. We are now working with the team to secure the delivery of several more Patriots,” Zelensky said.

The president also thanked the European Union for another step in the preparation of a new EU sanctions package, stressing the importance of keeping up the pressure on Russia for this war and the violation of the rules-based international order.

He recalled that Zambia also joined the Joint Communiqué of the first Peace Summit in Switzerland.

“Zambia has joined, increasing the representation of Africa among those who genuinely want to restore the full effectiveness of the UN Charter,” he said.  

Zelensky also stressed that more countries are expected to join the communiqué.

As Ukrinform reported, the Peace Summit was held on June 15-16 in the Swiss resort of Bürgenstock. The summit participants discussed nuclear security, food security and the humanitarian dimension - the exchange of prisoners and the return of kidnapped Ukrainian children.

The communiqué remains open for accession.
