➡️ Our nuclear scientists, all specialists in the energy industry manage to protect the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant from the worst-case scenario, which is constantly being provoked by Russian forces. Currently, the station has been connected to the network. Welcome. It produces energy for Ukraine.
➡️ It is important that the IAEA mission arrives at the station as soon as possible and helps keep the NPP under Ukrainian control on a permanent basis. That is why it is so important that Russian troops withdraw from the station and neighboring areas and that the threat of shelling of the station itself or power lines from it disappears.
➡️ Ukrainian diplomats and our partners continue to fight for the safety of ZNPP on a daily basis. And today I want to thank all those who are mobilizing the world’s response to Russian radiation blackmail. To all our nuclear scientists – you are well done, you are cool!
➡️ Today we can make the first conclusions about the rescue of many countries, many peoples from the food crisis, which Russia wanted so badly to exacerbate into real hunger. The grain export initiative has been operating for almost a month, and during this time, our three seaports exported the first million tons of agricultural products since February 24. This is a victory.
➡️ This means in practice that Ukrainian grain and the very fact that the Ukrainian direction of supply to the world food market has worked, make it possible to prevent chaos on the market, reduce the severity of the food crisis and prevent a catastrophic shortage. Ukraine was, is and will be among the guarantors of global food security.
➡️ By the way, 44 ships with Ukrainian agricultural products have already been sent to 15 countries of the world, we have 70 more applications for the arrival of ships for loading. The goal is to reach the volume of 3 million tons of export by sea every month. And this is extremely important for Africa, Asia and Europe.
➡️ It is also important that our society realizes: this export not only supports the international subjectivity of Ukraine, but also provides jobs for our citizens – it is hundreds of thousands of jobs, provides income for Ukrainian companies, to our budget and that very important, provides funds for planting next year.
I still remember the joy of the port workers in Odesa, when they not only learned, but actually saw that the port had resumed work.
➡️ We continue to mobilize informational support for Ukraine. Now is such a time that we need to look for even more non-standard channels for spreading the truth about Russia’s war against you and us, about our independence, about the needs of our state. We constantly find new information friends – real friends – partners in the defense of freedom and in countering Russian disinformation.
➡️ Today I spoke with Jimmy Fallon – a very famous American TV presenter, actor – about options for how to draw attention to Ukraine, how to convey the truth to the United States, to the people. How can we still help Ukraine – that was his main question. The question is how to win in this information war against the lies of the Russian Federation.
➡️ The situation on the front line remains without significant changes these days. Our soldiers are doing everything possible to reduce the fire and logistical potential of the occupiers. I think you all see the relevant news – about the destruction of the bases of the occupiers, their warehouses, those river crossings that they use.
➡️ The Armed Forces of Ukraine, all our people prove to the Russian occupiers every day that they do not have and will not have a chance to protect themselves on Ukrainian soil. The day will come when the occupiers will admit it. Or there simply won’t be any left.
➡️ Eternal glory to all of you, defenders of our state! Eternal glory to our strong, indomitable, wise, beautiful people! Glory to Ukraine!
