President Volodymyr Zelensky shared the results of the latest talks, noting that agreements on new defense packages for Ukraine had been reached.

"Today, I held a meeting on the European direction – our relations with the European Union, the tasks for this year, integration in general, and specifically on relations with our neighbors in the European Union. 

Our priority is clear: all existing agreements must be implemented, and every word that is spoken must be put into practice. This is exactly the approach Ukraine is taking on the European direction. And it is thanks to this that we have already achieved historic results", the president said.

He noticed that this year should be a time of real negotiations on accession:

"We can start as early as spring and take the first negotiating steps. This year should also be a time of maximum pragmatism in relations with our neighbors.  Everyone sees that Russia is not going to stop. They in Moscow want an arms race and new waves of destabilization. All of us in Europe need to realize this clearly. If the freedom of one falls, the freedom of all the others will not withstand either. This is the reality."

Ukrainians have to defend themselves and achieve common goals of thier country.
