"I am pleased to welcome the NATO Secretary General to Ukraine, and I am glad to have a meaningful conversation with him. Today it is already a conversation between de facto allies, and it is a matter of time before Ukraine becomes a de jure member of the Alliance. We are doing everything to bring this time closer," Zelenskyy said during a joint press conference with the NATO Secretary General in Kyiv.
In addition, the president thanked international partners for their assistance and emphasized that the results of cooperation with NATO are obvious. In particular, the tank, aviation and other coalitions are successfully operating.
"I am confident that we can continue to put pressure on the aggressor so that Russia only retreats and loses," Zelenskyy assured.
