The President of Ukraine has once again emphasized that Ukraine needs air defense systems.

Zelensky stated this in an address published in social media.

“Unfortunately, the death toll may still rise. This would not have happened if Ukraine had received a sufficient number of air defense systems and if the world’s determination to counter Russian terror had been sufficient”, he stressed.

The President of Ukraine called on partners to provide Ukraine with air defense systems to save as many lives as possible.

“Terrorists can only destroy lives if they first intimidate those who can stop terror and save lives. Determination matters. Support matters. The Ukrainian determination is sufficient. There must be equally sufficient determination from our partners and, as a result, sufficient support”, Zelensky said.

Recall that the Russians launched three missile strikes near the city center in the morning. The rescue operation is ongoing following the Russian missile strike. People are still trapped under rubble. As of now, at least 50 injured and 11 dead are known.
