I wish you health, dear Ukrainians!
Only two days have passed since the beginning of the year, and the number of Iranian drones shot down over Ukraine is already more than eighty. This number may increase in the near future. Because these weeks the nights can be quite restless.
We have information that Russia is planning a prolonged attack with "Shaheds". Its bet may be on exhaustion. On exhaustion of our people, our air defense, our energy sector.
But we must ensure - and we will do everything for this - that this goal of terrorists fails like all the others.
Today, I would like to mention the Air Commands "Center", "South" and "East" for the successful protection of the sky these days. And especially - the warriors of the 96th Kyiv, 208th Kherson and 138th Dnipro anti-aircraft missile brigades, the 301st Nikopol anti-aircraft missile regiment of the Air Forces, as well as the warriors of the 39th anti-aircraft missile regiment of the Ground Forces.
Of course, I am grateful to our pilots, the pilots of our fighters and warriors of mobile firing groups.
Now is the time when everyone involved in the protection of the sky should be especially attentive.
