Defense, security, sanctions: Zelensky announces preparations for productive September for Ukraine

President Volodymyr Zelensky announced the start of preparations for a productive September for Ukraine.

“We have already started preparing a productive September for Ukraine. Our international activity will be no less intensive than in these weeks,” the President posted on Telegram.

As noted, the first issue is defense. “New defense packages for Ukrainian warriors. Artillery, armored vehicles, air defense and missiles, as well as mine clearance equipment. Each partner is aware of our needs. We are expecting decisions,” Zelensky added.

Another issue is security guarantees for Ukraine. According to the Head of State, “the next rounds of negotiations and the accession of new countries to the common security architecture are coming soon.”

“We are constantly adding content to the first Defense Industry Forum. Ukrainian content. International content. The free world needs more power to defend itself. Together we have this potential and we will demonstrate it,” Zelensky stressed.

He also pointed out the preparations for Ukraine's participation in international events, including the UN General Assembly.

“The next Summit of First Ladies and Gentlemen is a way to build up Ukraine's soft power. Global food security is a constant priority. There are several meetings on these issues this week,” the President wrote.

In addition, he stressed that “the Global South will hear Ukraine. We are preparing a new communication.”

As noted, the United States recently adopted a new sanctions decision against Russian individuals and entities involved in the criminal deportation of Ukrainian children from our temporarily occupied territory.

“This is an important step. Ukraine is grateful for it. We are working on similar sanctions steps by our partners. The deportation of children, a deliberate and systematic attempt to deprive them of any ties with their families, and an attempt to teach them to hate their country is a Russian genocidal policy that deserves equal condemnation by everyone in the world. And I thank every state, every leader, and all international institutions that are helping us restore justice,” the President stressed.

Zelensky underscored that “the united world is stronger than an aggressor. In September, there will be even more unity.”
