The military assistance provided to Ukraine to defend itself against Russian aggression means saved lives of our citizens, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said following a meeting with the presidents of the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
"I believe that one of the main conclusions from our conversation today should be that there can be no 'defence taboos' in security assistance to Ukraine. Every artificial defence restriction for Ukraine is just another terrorist opportunity for the Russian Federation. And it is absolutely fair to provide our soldiers with everything necessary to protect the most important thing - life," the president noted.
He thanked Petr Pavel and Zuzana Čaputová for the meeting and "such important support for our country".
Today the presidents of Ukraine, the Czech Republic and Slovakia met in Kyiv. They signed a joint declaration of support for Ukraine's European and Euro-Atlantic integration.
