Constant missile attacks on Ukrainian cities show that the enemy is inadequate, has strength and wants to destroy Ukraine, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy believes.
“Now everyone should think about defending our country. We need to pull ourselves together, avoid unwinding and splitting up into disputes or other priorities,” the president said in a video message on Monday.
“The situation is the same now as it was before: if there is no victory, there will be no country. Our victory is possible. The resource of the state, the resource of the budget, the resource of our attention and emotions, the resource of our efforts – all this is needed for our victory,” he said.
“We all see people demanding that budget resources be allocated to help the defense effort instead of paving and repairing streets. This is the right thing to do. All resources should be used to make Ukraine stronger,” Zelenskyy said.
“We all hear what needs to be changed in the defense forces themselves: it concerns many procedures that are redundant, it concerns many difficulties that our warriors face. Transfers, training, and supply. There are many tasks. And all the relevant structures must deal with them without diverting their energy and efforts to anything else,” he said.
“We all see that now is not the time for grand celebrations or other brazen things in the rear, which are unacceptable in times of war, and even more so when the army, when all our defense forces live with completely different emotions: pain, battles, losses, but also achievements,” the president noted.
