President's address on March 6, 2024

The world has enough air defense systems and capabilities to produce weapons for defense. Weapons are needed here to save lives.

This was stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky during his traditional video address on Wednesday, March 6. He also emphasized that decisions are needed now. According to him, this is important for people who endure terrorist attacks every day and night.

"The main issue in the talks with the Greek Prime Minister was, of course, our defense, our capabilities in active operations and defense. Air defense. An absolute priority. As well as in negotiations with other partners," the President noted.

He reminded that only last night, Odesa alone was attacked by two dozen "Shaheds". And this morning is another missile attack against the city. According to Zelensky, there are wounded and dead.

"Today I spoke with Greek Prime Minister Mitsotakis about how we can strengthen our people here in the south of Ukraine. There will be negotiations with other states and leaders," the President emphasized once again.

He also added that he appreciates every manifestation of assistance.

In addition, according to the President, today, March 6, during his visit to Odesa, he held an operational meeting with local leaders. It was attended by both regional authorities and government officials. The main issue of the meeting was to provide all the necessary assistance to people who lost their homes as a result of Russian strikes and lost their documents.

It needs to be sufficient help. And fast. I am grateful to everyone who supports people now, to everyone who helps, who preserves as much normal life as possible here in Odesa, in all our cities. Russia should not gain anything with its terror," the President said.

Summarizing his traditional video address, Zelensky thanked everyone who is fighting for the sake of our people and state.

"I thank each and everyone who works for Ukraine and in Ukraine. I thank Odesa - everyone who protects our Odesa, who defends the city, everyone who works in the city, provides jobs for people. I am grateful to everyone in the world who helps!" the Head of State emphasized.

As a reminder, on the morning of March 6, Russian troops launched a missile attack on Odesa when Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky were visiting the city. The shelling resulted in deaths and injuries.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, Mitsotakis arrived in Ukraine on the morning of March 6 on an unannounced visit. He arrived in Odesa, where he met with Zelensky. Earlier, Greek Special Representative to Ukraine Spyros Lampridis said that Athens was considering increasing military assistance to Kyiv.
