“There are priorities: air defence systems, a defence shield. These are not just words but concrete things, and we need them in very specific geographical points of our land to preserve the power network, people, grain and its supply routes to Africa, Asia, and the world,” Zelenskyy said.

Zelenskyy said long-range missiles and weapons are needed as well. “No matter what you call it, the problem is how to get it. Because we need it for the main reason – to oust Russia from our land,” Zelenskyy said.



“And the third thing: how to defend and stand up every day and defend yourself. This is not about a counteroffensive. A counteroffensive is one direction, but we also need to defend ourselves because on the other side is Russia, a large army of terrorists,” Zelenskyy said.

Zelenskyy explained that he was talking about the need for artillery.

As reported, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy arrived on an unexpected visit to Brussels on 11 October.

Brussels is hosting a meeting on 11 October of the Contact Group on the defence of Ukraine (Ramstein format), a meeting of NATO defence ministers and the Ukraine-NATO Council.
