"There is a decision on humanitarian support packages": Zelenskyy names countries ready to help Ukraine in Dnipro rescue operation
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that two more countries had responded to Ukraine's request for assistance after the Russian occupiers blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station in Kherson region. These are the Netherlands and Japan.
The President said this in an address to Ukrainians and the world at the end of the 471st day of the war with Russia. The President's video was published by his press service on the evening of Friday, June 9 (to watch the video, scroll to the bottom of the page).
These countries will provide humanitarian assistance to the settlements affected by large-scale floods that occurred because the military of the aggressor country Russia blew up the dam of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station.
Zelenskyy noted that he had held talks with the prime ministers of the Netherlands and Japan and told them about the rescue operation that Ukraine was conducting in the flooded towns and villages in the south. The politicians also learned what kind of assistance our country needs in the first place.
"There is a willingness to help Ukraine, and I am grateful to our partners for that. There are decisions on humanitarian support packages," the Head of State said.
It should be noted that the day before, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that after the Russian occupiers blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station in Kherson region, Ukraine had handed over a list of urgent needs to NATO to overcome the consequences of this disaster. The Alliance responded to the call and Ukraine will soon receive the necessary humanitarian aid from the bloc.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, US President Joe Biden promised to support Ukraine after Russian war criminals blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station in Kherson region. He assured that Washington "will not abandon Ukraine".
