President Zelenskyy held a phone conversation with the President of the UAE, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, according to a post by the Ukrainian head of state on Telegram.

"He expressed gratitude for the support of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity and for facilitating the exchange of prisoners. The repatriation of individuals is a top priority for Ukraine, and we anticipate the continued active role of the Emirates," stated President Zelenskyy.

Zelenskyy also extended appreciation for the humanitarian aid received, specifically mentioning a recent shipment of over one and a half thousand generators. In the face of Russian aerial threats, such assistance is deemed critical, according to the Ukrainian President.
