Quote: "Regarding the reconstruction of universities... Everyone is paying attention to the situation with missile and drone attacks on our country.


The reconstruction of many facilities has begun (those where the repeated strikes is minimised). Mykolaiv remains under threat for now. We are working to provide it with air defence fundamentally.

...We have arrangements with our partners to strengthen the air defence in the south considerably. It (air defence – ed.) is not being delivered as quickly as we expected, as it should be, but that will come. We will pay attention to certain systems. There will be many of them.

...When Mykolaiv Oblast has a powerful military defence system, I think we will be able to restore important universities very quickly – and not just them."

Details: The President also expressed gratitude to Ukrainian students who remain in Ukraine despite the threat.

Quote: "I don't want to describe why people left our country and did not return. We understand that the war is ongoing, and everyone has different reasons.

But I can talk about you. I believe that the state as a whole only stands as an iron shield against the Russian invasion thanks to the Ukrainians who are here [in Ukraine]; apart from our soldiers, I'm grateful to the people who work every day, and to those who make it possible for things to stay this way, and [those] who represent our face, the face of the future of Ukraine."
