President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said he had held the first meeting of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief's Staff, which was convened by new NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Lytvynenko.

He noted that the challenges are very serious. Russian terrorists struck again at the Ukrainian energy sector. Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko, and the chairmen of the boards of Ukrenergo and Naftogaz, Volodymyr Kudrytskyy and Oleksiy Chernyshov, reported on the damage and restoration work. They discussed the most effective methods of physical protection and their implementation at other facilities.

"Last night, the Kaniv and Dniester HPPs were deliberately targeted by the enemy. The terrorist country wants to repeat the environmental disaster it caused in Kherson Region. But now not only Ukraine but also Moldova is under threat. The water will not stop before the border pillars, and neither will the Russian war, unless we stop it in Ukraine together and in time," the president said.

He also said that the number two issue on the agenda was short-term and long-term contracts for the supply of weapons and ammunition. The need for air defence came to the fore. Due to the intensity of Russian shelling, it is necessary to replenish stocks more quickly. The president instructed the Staff to intensify work with partners and said he counts on their quick response.
