This was reported on Telegram.
"I was very pleased to hear a positive assessment of the stability of our institutions, the effectiveness and efficiency of our country in the conditions of such brutal aggression. There are situations when even in much simpler conditions the state cannot withstand. The Ukrainian state has passed terrible tests and has retained full functionality. This is still one achievement of our people - all those who work for the state. An achievement that should be celebrated right now - these days, on the eve of the anniversary of the invasion. Ukrainians are capable of very important things, and every day we see new evidence of this," the president said.
In particular, he added that IMF support creates an opportunity for Ukraine to remain strong.
"It is also a weapon - an economic weapon that allows us, our society, and our business to develop. We really want business to develop, we want investments to come, and we know that the IMF always gives the right signals through its activities," he said.
On Monday, February 20, the US president arrived in Kyiv, where he was to announce another package of artillery ammunition, anti-tank systems and aerial surveillance radars to Ukraine.
