supportof his leadership over the nine years. years of the war and especially during the last year and a half that I won.

victory. and my message to the whole world, please do not be afraid of the Ukrainian
victorybecause without the Ukrainian victory the war will not end without my membership and I want to thank Ben Wallace and the British government for suppressing
supportfor Ukraine and its aspiration to be a member of NATO. and the goal of energy, especially the security of nuclear energy infrastructure, is also vital for us and another thing is that today we have a very successful attack with a long-range missile attack against the School airport, where we destroyed several strategic aircraft from which to make an attack on the Ukrainian civilian residence object, this is very important for us, yes, and we also saw the drone attack that hit an airfield about 400 miles from the border with Ukraine, does this indicate that will it become more of an airstrike? battle right now this indicates that the growing military strength of Ukraine I just want to remind you that Ukraine is a space state and we have a missile technology and since my presidency since 2014 new sophisticated missile technology was happening.
