"We are grateful to the Netherlands for important decisions in support of Ukraine made at critical times. These decisions have served as signals to other partners, as was the case with the Patriot and F-16. This is significant support for our army and our people," the head of state noted.

Volodymyr Zelensky provided an update on the situation on the battlefield.

The discussion also covered further support from the Netherlands in enhancing the capabilities of Ukrainian defenders and the security of the "grain corridor."

Also, there was an exchange of views on the situation in the Middle East.

At the end of the meeting, Volodymyr Zelensky presented Kajsa Ollongren with the Order of Prince Yaroslav the Wise, 3rd class, for her significant personal contribution to strengthening interstate cooperation, supporting Ukraine's independence and territorial integrity.
