Frontline and energy: President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy chaired a meeting of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief's Staff

Оn Monday, 15 April, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy chaired a meeting of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief's Staff to discuss Ukraine's defence needs and the protection of critical infrastructure.

"The meeting was focused on two of the most important tracks now: the frontline and energy. A report by Chief Commander Oleksandr Syrskyi on the situation on the main axes, our defence needs and our future actions. Intelligence data: Oleh Ivashchenko from the Foreign Intelligence Service and Kyrylo Budanov from the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine on the enemy's likely actions. The report of Defence Minister Rustem Umierov on contracts for the supply of weapons, electronic warfare systems and drones," the President of Ukraine noted.

Representatives of the energy sector - the Ministry of Energy, Energoatom, Ukrenergo, Naftogaz - reported on the efforts they are making to protect power systems, restore damaged generation, and reconnect consumers. In addition, there was a report by Deputy Prime Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov on the protection of critical infrastructure, especially in the frontline and border regions.

"Obviously, physical protection cannot fully protect some facilities from terrorist attacks. This can only be done by sufficiently effective air defence. We are grateful to those friends who understand this and quickly responded to our calls to support Ukraine's air defence. But the intensity of Russian attacks requires greater unity. By defending Israel, the free world has demonstrated that such unity is not only possible, but also one hundred per cent effective. Decisive actions of the allies prevented the success of terror and the loss of infrastructure and made the aggressor cool down", - said the President of Ukraine.

He emphasised that the same is possible in the defence of Ukraine, which, like Israel, is not a NATO member, against terror. "This does not require the activation of Article 5, only political will is enough", - summed up Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
