Together with Rostyslav Shurma, Deputy Head of the President’s Office, and Yuliia Svyrydenko, Minister of Economy of Ukraine and First Deputy Prime Minister, we spoke with the President [of Korea] about the necessity of air defense measures to thwart the aggressor country’s missile terrorism.
Additionally, we require tools to remove the mines and traps that Russia has put on our territory as well as medical supplies to save anyone who was hurt by the attackers.
The First Lady of Ukraine informed Kim Keon-hee, the First Lady of South Korea, of the cultural losses incurred by Ukraine as a result of the Russian attack.
