After receiving powerful air defense systems, Ukraine will begin to rebuild the infrastructure of Mykolaiv region, including educational institutions, hospitals and social buildings. This was stated by the President of Ukraine at a meeting with students of three Mykolaiv higher education institutions.
“As for the reconstruction of Mykolaiv universities, everyone is paying attention to the situation with the enemy’s missile attacks. The reconstruction of many facilities in Ukraine has already begun, but only in those areas where the threat is minimized. Mykolaiv is still under threat. We are working to provide it with air defense as much as possible. While Mykolaiv region will have powerful air defense systems, we will be able to restore important facilities, including educational institutions, hospitals, and social protection institutions very quickly,” the President noted.
He reminded that Ukraine already had a number of agreements with its partners to provide and strengthen air defense capabilities in the south of the country.
“We have agreements with our partners to reinforce our south with air defense systems. The equipment is not arriving as soon as we expected, not as fast as it should be, but it will be there. We will pay attention to certain air defense systems, there are many of them, they are different, and there will be many of them in Ukraine,” Zelensky said.
He also noted that Denmark was ready to take the lead in the restoration of Mykolaiv region.
The President expressed gratitude to Ukrainian students who remained in Ukraine despite the enemy threat.
“The state stands as an iron shield against the Russian invasion thanks to the Ukrainians who have remained in Ukraine, thanks to the soldiers who are holding the defense for the sake of the future of our state, for the sake of those who will be the face of Ukraine in the future,” the Head of State emphasized.
