With the participation of Head of the Presidential Office Andriy Yermak, a briefing was held for representatives of the European Union Political and Security Committee regarding the resistance to a full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation and the enlargement of the capabilities of the defense forces of Ukraine.
The briefing was also joined by Deputy Heads of the Office of the President Ihor Zhovkva and Roman Mashovets, as well as representatives of the defense and security forces of Ukraine.
Andriy Yermak noted the importance of the fact that all members of the EU Political and Security Committee visited our country, which is a manifestation of strong support and solidarity with Ukraine.
“I want to thank your countries, your peoples, your leaders and governments for supporting Ukraine. We will never forget this,” he said.
The Head of the President’s Office emphasized that due to the unity of Ukrainians and partners, our state not only defends itself from the Russian aggressor, but also liberates its territories.
In his opinion, it is crucial that the representatives of all EU member states working in this important Committee will be able to obtain up-to-date and accurate information directly from primary sources in Ukraine.
In particular, Roman Mashovets informed the representatives of the EU Committee about the general situation on the frontline of the Russian-Ukrainian war and underscored the critical needs of the defense forces of Ukraine.
The representatives of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense informed the attendees about the situation around Ukraine.
The representative of the “Center” air command spoke about the measures taken to protect the Ukrainian sky. He expressed gratitude for the modern air defense systems provided to Ukraine by the partner states and outlined the current needs of the Air Forces of Ukraine.
For his part, Deputy Head of the Office of the President Ihor Zhovkva thanked the diplomats for supporting an important EU political decision to supply Ukraine with 1 million artillery shells within the next 12 months in the framework of the joint action plan. He especially noted the total budget of the European Peace Facility – 6.7 billion euros, within which the European Union provides support to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. At the same time, Ihor Zhovkva emphasized the importance of increasing funding in this direction in order to further enhance Ukraine’s defense capabilities.
