President Volodymyr Zelensky has met with Minister for Foreign Affairs of Greece Nikos Dendias.

“This is the third visit of Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias to Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale invasion. Grateful to the Greek government and society for their support. In particular, for the decision to supply Ukraine with infantry fighting vehicles,” Zelensky wrote on Telegram.

He also thanked for the principled and staunch stance of Greece during the adoption of the decision to grant Ukraine the European Union candidate status.

“It is important to us that Greece supports Ukraine in overcoming all challenges. And we feel this support,” Zelensky stressed.

According to the President’s Office, the head of state discussed with the Greek foreign minister key issues of bilateral cooperation: strengthening support for Ukraine and sanctions pressure on Russia, as well as ensuring a tough consolidated response of the international community to the crimes of the Russian aggressor against Ukraine.

Noting Greece's consistent support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within internationally recognized borders, Zelensky thanked the Greek government and society for effective assistance provided to Ukraine in the fight against Russian aggression, primarily in the defense sphere, as well as for supporting Ukraine's initiative to include the historical center of the city of Odesa to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

He also highly appreciated Greece's decisions and practical steps regarding the supply of infantry fighting vehicles to Ukraine.

In addition, Zelensky briefed Dendias on the aftermath of missile terror by Russia, which seeks to destroy Ukraine's critical infrastructure, primarily energy, on the eve of winter and the beginning of the heating season.

"But the enemy is not capable of destroying the will of our people," Zelensky said and called on Greece to actively participate in the restoration of Ukraine, primarily in the energy sector.

Separately, Zelensky and Dendias discussed the prospects of stepping up interstate cooperation at the highest level.
