Zelensky promises to bring Ukrainian army up to NATO standards

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has promised to make every effort to bring the Armed Forces of Ukraine up to NATO standards.

"That is why we will do everything to implement the much needed changes for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We will bring them up to NATO standards by deeds, not words," Zelensky said during a conversation with military personnel in the JFO area, which was broadcast live on the President's Office Facebook page.

He stressed that the army should constantly develop, strengthen its combat capability and training.

“Our country exists thanks to you. Nobody will ever respect a state which does not support and does not take care for its army,” the President addressed the military.

The Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is marked today, December 6.
