Quote: "In order for Ukraine's support in the world not to decrease and for our state to move towards victory, our own activity – that of absolutely everyone who in one way or another stands up for the defence of our state – should not decrease either."
"Do everything you have been doing for Ukraine. And [we can do] even more, because the Russian leadership expects that Ukrainians, Europeans and the whole world will get tired of this war."
"We must do everything so that it is not us or our friends and partners who get tired, but our enemy. In order to expel the occupiers from Ukraine, it must become more and more difficult every day for Russia to wage war. This is our top military-political task."
