Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated on Thursday that it is important for the whole of Europe to ensure Russia's defeat in the war, APA reports citing BBN.

"I call on you to help protect our cities - Kharkiv, Sumy, Dnipro, Odesa, Kherson, and others. We need to ensure reliable protection of the skies above the front line. We must force Putin to lose the battle for Ukrainian skies, and if he does, he will lose the land as well," Zelenskyy told the European Union summit.

Zelenskyy underlined the necessity to strengthen Ukrainian air defense systems to "protect territory from Russian terror."
