Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis today, April 11. Among other things, they discussed Russian aggression and the lack of air defense systems in Ukraine, according to the President.

"During the meeting with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, we discussed cooperation in the defense sector. I informed him about the Russian shelling of the Dniester hydroelectric power station. Ukrainian air defense needs to be strengthened to create a reliable air shield," the President said.

According to Zelenskyy, they discussed the operation of Ukraine's export corridor with Romania and Moldova.

"We appreciate Romania's position on Ukrainian agricultural transit. In the conditions of Russian aggression, the Ukraine-Romania tandem makes a significant contribution to ensuring global food security," emphasized Zelenskyy.

Romania recently called for "ambitious actions" to support Ukraine at the NATO summit.

We also reported on the problems Ukrainian refugees face in Romania. Only 10% of respondents can meet all their basic needs.

In addition, RBC-Ukraine reported that in the fall, Ukrainians began to leave Romania more often. One of the reasons was the delay in social payments.
