During today's video address, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy remarks that enduring this year will mean enduring this entire war, according to his statement.

Zelenskyy stresses that Ukraine's foremost priority remains unchanged: providing everything necessary for the defense of Ukraine and its active operations. Among other things, Ukraine aims to ensure:

  • Ammunition
  • Drones
  • Equipment
  • Personnel

"Enduring this year means enduring this entire war. It's a critical and decisive time. Grateful to everyone who realizes this, who helps the state become stronger, and who gives our soldiers the ability to defeat the enemy," emphasizes the president.

Production of weaponry in Ukraine

Towards the end of 2023, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that Ukraine should become strong and efficient enough for Russia to know that every attack will receive a response. Achieving this goal is possible through a sufficient quantity of domestically produced weapons.

He noted that about 300,000 individuals are currently involved in the defense complex in Ukraine. Zelenskyy also mentioned that the share of private companies in the defense complex is consistently increasing, with four out of five companies being non-state enterprises.
