We have a new defense aid package from the US in the amount of $725 million – Zelensky’s appeal

Office of the President

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy issued a new address based on the results of October 15, the 234th day of the war against the Russian invaders. As the Ukrainian leader noted, the total losses of the enemy in terms of only those killed are approaching sixty-five thousand. That’s how many citizens of the Russian Federation gave their lives for the opportunity for a handful of people in the Kremlin to ignore reality.

The main points from the address of the President of Ukraine:

  • We have a new package of defense aid from the United States of America in the amount of 725 million dollars. These are very necessary things. Ammunition for “Hymars” and artillery, anti-tank weapons, anti-radar missiles. I thank President Biden, bipartisan Congress, and the entire American people for this strong package.

  • We are doing everything to reduce the capabilities of the occupiers, the ability of the Russian army to carry terror through Ukrainian land. We are consistently destroying the logistics of terrorists, their warehouses and headquarters.

  • The total losses of the enemy in killed people are approaching 65,000. So many Russian citizens have given their lives for the opportunity for a handful of people in the Kremlin to ignore reality. And according to the way the Russian “burial” continues, we can say that even 100,000 dead Russian citizens will not prompt the Kremlin to think about something.

  • Only real victories for Ukraine, only real protection of itself by the free world from Russian terror and blackmail – protection with sanctions, protection with help to Ukraine – only complete displacement of the occupiers from Ukrainian land and dismantling of the aggressive capabilities of the terrorist state – all this is the way to peace.

  • This day and last day, various regions of our country were subjected to Russian attacks. In particular, missiles and Iranian drones. Some of the missiles and drones were shot down. But, unfortunately, not all. Unfortunately, there is destruction and casualties. Donbas, Zaporizhzhia, Mykolaiv region, Kharkiv region, Sumy region, Kyiv region, Dnipropetrovsk region and some other regions of our country…

  • We are doing everything to shoot down more enemy missiles and drones to neutralize more strike positions of the Russian army. And the day will surely come when our state will be able to fulfill this task one hundred percent. Today, I want to thank all our people who are promptly eliminating the consequences of the Russian terrorist attacks: our energy workers, employees of the State Emergency Service, communal services and local authorities, construction workers, employees of the National Police, government officials who coordinate the recovery process.

  • Also, in the liberated areas of Kharkiv Oblast, Kherson Oblast, and Donetsk Oblast (in Lyman, Sviatohirsk) we are working to restore order, social and medical services, energy supply, communication and mail, water and gas supply, where possible. For example, they began to restore gas supply to Izyum – the first 500 families of the city already have gas in their homes again. Just yesterday, more than 3,000 houses in the Izyum, Kupyan, Chuguyiv and Kharkiv districts of the Kharkiv region were connected to the gas supply. Work is ongoing in other directions as well.

  • Thank you to everyone who is returning normal life to Ukrainians! Active operations continue in various areas of the front. A very difficult situation persists in Donetsk region and Luhansk region. The most difficult is the Bakhmut direction, as in the previous days. We hold our positions.

  • In general, in the east and south, we do everything to make the occupiers feel that they have no prospects. No matter who they send to fight against us, it will only end in defeat for them.

“Well, for the citizens of Russia who do not want to participate in this criminal war, but who are sent to war, I will once again remind you of one possibility. All those who surrender to Ukrainian captivity save their lives. Everyone who continues to fight in the Russian army or among mercenaries does not have this opportunity.”– the President of Ukraine noted separately.

It will be recalled that Zelensky stated that 15 energy facilities that were damaged as a result of shelling by the occupiers have already been fully restored.

Earlier, the Ukrainian president noted that Russia may be preparing new strikes against Ukraine in order to destroy the GTS.

Zelensky also instructed the Cabinet of Ministers to consider the issue of visa-free cancellation with Belarus.
