Ukraine receives new aid package from Italy – Zelensky


President Volodymyr Zelenskyi of Ukraine said the country has received a new assistance package from Italy.

This is reported by Ukrinform with reference to Italy’s Rai.

“We received a (new – ed.) aid package, which means that Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni’s support has not changed,” Zelensky said.

The president added that, within the framework of military aid from Italy and European allies, a decision is expected regarding an air defense system to ensure the possibility of protecting Ukrainian power plants. He also emphasized the need for joint assistance to Ukraine on the part of the entire European continent.

At the same time, the head of the Ukrainian state said that he would be glad to warmly welcome Meloni whenever she decides to visit Ukraine, ANSA reports.

The president thanked Italy for its constant support after Russia’s invasion, and acknowledged that Rome’s position on Kyiv has been unwavering, despite the controversial critical comments made against him by former prime minister and leader of the “Forward, Italy” party Silvio Berlusconi.

“On the contrary, I thank her from here (Ukraine — ed.) and I am waiting for her (Meloni — ed.). I know that she will come (soon — ed.),” Zelensky said.

Giorgia Meloni previously stated that she intends to visit Ukraine ahead of the anniversary of Russia’s invasion.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, the largest legislative group in the European Parliament canceled a visit to Naples after the unacceptable statements by Italy’s former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi addressing President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine.
