Office of the President

The new Ukrainian sanctions are part of the global pressure on the terrorist state. All those who produce weapons of terror against Ukraine and help incite aggression cannot but be marginal to the world.

This was stated by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi in his evening speech.

“There are new NSDC sanctions. More than 400 people and companies. Most of them are Russians. This is the military industry of a terrorist state. But these are also Iranian and Syrian individuals, those who help terror. Let’s study carefully each of our sanctions steps. The Ukrainian sanctions are part of the global pressure on Russia”– said Zelensky.

He added that whoever produces terror weapons against Ukraine, helps the Russian Federation incite aggression, especially by supplying “Shakhedi”, and advocates Russia’s destruction of international law, can only be marginal to the world.

The main points of the Ukrainian leader’s speech:

  • Russia will ultimately be held accountable for everything it does against our people, against the people in general, against international law. And this, by the way, will be about not only terror against Ukrainians, not only attempts to annex our land, starting with the Crimea, but also other Russian aggression against the international order, against normal and peaceful human life . In particular, on the territory of Syria. The Syrian people have not received adequate international protection, and this has given the Kremlin and its accomplices a sense of impunity. Russian bombs destroyed the cities of Syria in the same way as our Ukrainian cities. This impunity is a significant part of the Kremlin’s current aggressiveness.

  • This week has brought good military results for our resistance to Russian aggression. Another “Ramstein” meeting was held.

  • There are new defense packages from our friends: Canada, Germany, France, Denmark, Estonia. This applies to ammunition and ammunition, tanks and artillery. There is a much needed fix for archers – thank you very much Sweden. The decision on MiGs – thank you very much Slovakia. Poland, Lithuania, Great Britain, the European Union, the United States and many others continue to provide powerful assistance.

  • A conversation took place between Ukraine and the United States in an expanded defense format. On the side of Ukraine were the Minister of Defense, the Chief Commissar, the commanders of operational areas – these are Generals Syrskyi and Tarnavskyi, the Air Force Commander, the head of the bureau. I joined this conversation. Our goal is obvious: to strengthen our soldiers, new solutions for Ukraine to be able to take active action and protect itself from Russian terror, to restore real security.

  • I thank all our Air Force soldiers, all our pilots, anti-aircraft fighters shooting down killer drones and missiles! I will once again mention our soldiers in the Donetsk region – those who “minus” the enemy more. Marines of the 35th and 36th separate brigades, fighters of the 79th separate amphibious assault brigade, soldiers of the 11th border detachment, 55th separate artillery brigade, 72nd separate mechanized brigade and 74th separate reconnaissance.

  • I especially thank all those who defend Bakhmut every day. The battles right there, right in these parts of Donbass – Vugledar, Bakhmut, Maryinka, Belogorivka, Avdiivka, Kamianka – make it possible to restore security to Ukraine, to all of Europe, to every nation that values ​​its freedom and integrity of his land.

It will be recalled that Zelensky reacted to the supply of an air and anti-aircraft weapons package from Slovakia, which, among other things, included MIG-29 aircraft.

The day before, Zelenskyi replaced Ukraine’s ambassador to Estonia.
