Supreme Commander-in-Chief’s Staff meeting: the fundamental task is to retain the initiative so that we can become stronger
Ukraine needs an ambitious, active perspective so that Ukraine has the initiative, not the enemy. That was emphasised by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy on 17 January after holding the Supreme Commander-in-Chief’s Staff meeting.
He noted that at the meeting, they considered a range of matters – current frontline circumstances, countering subversive groups, fortifying the border in the north.
“I held a meeting of the Staff. Operational level – the situation at the front now. Reports from the commanders. Different directions. East. South. North as well – countering subversive groups, fortifying the border”, – underlined Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
As the President of Ukraine said, “there was also a strategic level of discussion – our actions this year. And not just defence. Ukraine needs an ambitious, active perspective. We want our country to retain the initiative, not the enemy. We want the end of the war to depend on Ukrainian actions. The world supports those who have a perspective. And this is a fundamental task – to retain the initiative so that we can become stronger”, – emphasised the President.
He also reported he had held a debriefing after his official visit to Switzerland and participation in the Davos Forum.
“Today, government officials continued their work at the Forum. In particular, to attract more business and technological opportunities to Ukraine – to the defence sector. It is very important that we present not only the needs of Ukraine and our warriors, the entire society, but also, despite all the difficulties of the war, Ukraine’s capabilities – what we do, what we can do, and what we can contribute to enhance the common security in Europe”.
