The frontline, our own weapons production, defence of our cities: the President of Ukraine chaired a Supreme Commander-in-Chief’s Staff meeting

On Monday, 22 April, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy chaired a Supreme Commander-in-Chief’s Staff meeting. The meeting addressed a number of issues. The main ones covered the situation at the frontline, in-house arms production, and the protection of Ukrainian cities from hostile attacks.

"First and foremost, the frontline", - Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted, and added that Commander-in-Chief Oleksandr Syrskyi had made a report. - "The occupation army was ordered to demonstrate at least some victories by 9 May, regardless of its losses. Now they are also being pushed by the positive decisions taken by Ukraine's friends. Our soldiers are facing difficult times, but the receipt of the necessary assistance will help level up the playing field. That's why we urgently need support with specific weapons available from our partners."

Discussing the issue of domestic arms production, the NSDC members heard from Ukraine's Defence Minister Rustem Umierov. He spoke in detail about contracts with domestic companies.

"We are working on a new format of agreements that, on the one hand, will not overburden the military budget, and on the other hand, will guarantee long-term commitments of the state to manufacturers", - emphasised the President of Ukraine.
The third issue is the protection of the Ukrainian cities. Volodymyr Zelenskyy underlined that for the next meeting of the National Security and Defence Council he had instructed to collect everything our intelligence agencies know about the intentions of russian terrorists to destroy civilian infrastructure, and therefore prepare a comprehensive plan of further actions: strengthening physical defence where it works, redeploying air defence systems and decentralising where possible.
