President Volodymyr Zelensky is convinced that the fight against Russia's military invasion of Ukraine has become a factor that has united both the entire Ukrainian people and the European Union, which has united around the support of Ukrainians.

The atmosphere of dialogue and relations between Ukraine and the EU is now the best in many years, said the President during a conversation with media representatives after talks with President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen and High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell in Kyiv.

"Unfortunately, I have to say that this is primarily due to the war. The war united Ukraine completely, united our people with authorities, that's why Ukraine is so strong. Unfortunately, this war also brought many victims, and around this, to protect Ukraine and Ukrainians, it united the European Union. And the world in general," Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed.

The President is convinced that the answers to all questions in the relations between Ukraine and the EU will be found eventually.

"The most important thing now is for us to be united. And even when the leaders of certain countries slow down certain processes, the people of all European Union states - I see it and all Ukrainians see it - take to the streets, to the squares of European cities. These people united for the sake of Ukraine," he said.

The Head of State stressed that today it is necessary to overcome the aggressive policy of the Russian Federation towards the people of Ukraine.

"And towards the people of Ukraine means towards the people of Europe as well, because we have the same values," the President stressed.

According to Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the imposition of sanctions is a substantial diplomatic weapon of the EU against the Russian aggressor. Therefore, it is important for these measures to be not superficially but deeply elaborated, well thought out and completed, so that Russia cannot bypass them.
