During the teleconference, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed residents of European cities who took part in a rally in support of Ukraine.
Rallies in support of our state and against the Russian invasion took place in Frankfurt, Prague, Lyon, Tbilisi, Vienna, Bratislava and Vilnius. In total, about 200,000 people took part in them.
Speaking directly from the Office of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that he dedicated the first minute of his speech to honoring the memory of all the perished Ukrainian servicemen, special service officers, police officers, reconnaissance officers, firefighters - "those who gave their lives, who are now among us, but we don't see them anymore."
"I want to dedicate a second minute to silence as well - in honor of our civilians: adults and children, dozens and hundreds of those who gave their lives but did not know about it. Gave lives and received eternal peace. I ask you to honor their memory in silence," the President said.
The President dedicated the third minute to the people of Europe.
"Don't be silent. Come to the streets. Support Ukraine. Support our freedom. Because this is a victory not only over the Russian military, it is a victory of light over darkness. This is the victory of good over evil. The victory of freedom over what is happening today in our country, on the territory of Ukraine. Do not be silent, support Ukraine. Because if Ukraine does not survive, the whole of Europe will not survive. If Ukraine falls, the whole of Europe will fall. And if we win - and I am confident in our people, I am confident in you - it will be a great victory of democracy, values, victory of freedom," said Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
"Then moments of silence will turn into years of prosperity. Europe, be as strong as the people of Ukraine. Glory to Ukraine!" the Head of State emphasized.
