Quote: "First of all, the front line, and in particular Avdiivka, Kupiansk, and Lyman. Maximum attention, maximum support.

Commander-in-Chief Syrskyi and Defence Minister Umierov are currently on the ground, at the front, all day long. Today they visited all the hot spots of the front line and reported on the situation. The existing problems are being resolved: manning the units, reinforcement, command and control. There will be reinforcement with drones and electronic warfare systems. Command positions will also be reinforced. A detailed report will follow later."

Details: Zelenskyy also noted that the United States had held a strategically important vote on a package of further support for Ukraine.

Quote: "The next step is a vote in the House of Representatives. This is extremely important. We anticipate an equally strong moral choice and a decision that will enter into effect, contributing to our common security."
