Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked German Chancellor Olaf Scholz for providing an additional Patriot system, IRIS-T and Skynex systems, as well as missiles and rounds for existing anti-aircraft missile systems.

"Thank you, Olaf, for your leadership! This is a real manifestation of support for Ukraine at a critical time for us. I call on all other leaders of the partner states to follow suit," said the Head of State.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy also spoke about the current situation in the energy industry, especially in the Kharkiv region, as well as in other affected regions, and about the operational situation on the front line and the current needs of the Defence Forces.

The President thanked for the support of the Czech initiative to find artillery shells for Ukraine and emphasized that its effectiveness directly depends on its timely implementation.

The counterparts discussed preparations for the Ukraine Recovery Conference, which will be held in Germany in the summer, and the organization of the Global Peace Summit in Switzerland. They also coordinated efforts to ensure the widest possible participation of the countries of the Global South.
