"The EU has made historic decisions on providing weapons to Ukraine, imposing sanctions on Russia, launching Ukraine's EU accession talks, and supporting Volodymyr Zelensky's Peace Formula. Many improvements and decisions are still ahead and we are working together to ensure their quick adoption," Kuleba emphasized.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, President Volodymyr Zelensky, speaking at the Hostomel Airfield on Saturday, said that since Russia’s full-scale invasion, Ukraine has upgraded its defense industry and reached a new level of arms production.
