President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed all partner countries and thanked them for their support of Ukraine. At the same time, he reminded them of the importance of continuing to cooperate to prevent Russia from winning the war.

"I would like to thank all of Ukraine's partners who have supported and continue to support our country. We continue to work with the teams of European countries to strengthen Ukraine, to provide new defense packages and new security solutions," the President said.

He reminded that over the past week, Ukraine had received a lot of support from its partners. However, it is important that it does not stop in the future.

"The war was started by Russia on the Ukrainian front, but our state and independence are not the only targets. That is why it is absolutely important to maintain the maximum consolidation of the free world and do everything possible and impossible to ensure that Ukraine can inflict defeats on Russia. Moscow does not understand anything else," Zelenskyy said.

As President Zelenskyy has previously noted, Ukraine must become so strong and effective that Russia knows that every attack will be met with a response. To do this, it is necessary to increase the production of domestic weapons.

Ukraine already produces long-range weapons. For example, experts have managed to develop a new version of the long-range Neptune missile. In particular, it has recently become known that mass production of drones, which are a kind of analog to Iranian Shaheds, has begun.

According to Oleksandr Kamyshin, head of the Ministry of Strategic Industry, Ukraine has significantly increased its production of ammunition. For example, the number of mines has increased 42 times, and artillery shells almost 3 times.
