Quote: "Held a meeting of the Staff. We discussed three key questions.
The first is the front. We heard the reports of the commanders: Zaluzhnyi, Syrskyi, Tarnavskyi [Valerii Zaluzhnyi, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine; Oleksandr Syrskyi, Commander of Ukraine's Ground Forces and the Khortytsia group; Oleksandr Tarnavskyi, Commander of the Tavriia group – ed.]. Discussed the situation in the main directions in the east, south. Protection of our positions. Our advances.
The second is the Ukrainian production of weapons and equipment, a constant increase in volumes. The Ministry of Strategic Industries has a clear task to present a programme for providing Ukrainian weapons in all key areas, from missiles and drones to armoured vehicles and shells. There have already been reports on individual elements of such a programme. Good results. There will be more significant ones soon.
A separate order to Deputy Prime Minister Fedorov and Defence Minister Umierov is the maximum digitalisation of the mechanism of supplying our defence forces. Full accountability and control is our priority. There are clear deadlines for implementation.
The third point is the situation in the Middle East. We heard a comprehensive analysis from the head of the Foreign Intelligence Service Lytvynenko. We take all factors into account, take care of the interests of our citizens in the region and work with partners to prevent further destabilisation."
