(MENAFN- UkrinForm) Ukraine shares its experience in energy security with all the leading countries of the world.
This was stated by the President of Ukraine at a meeting with students of three Mykolaiv higher education institutions, Ukrinform reports.
"Last year, after the missile attacks on Ukraine's energy system, we realized how strong we are, and at the same time how weak our system is in general. We were not prepared for a missile war. But no one could have been properly prepared for this, not a single country in the world. That is why today we share our experience, our approach to energy security with all the leading countries of the world that help us," the President noted.
According to him, Ukraine's partners are studying the need to ensure decentralization of the energy sector and the security of strategic energy resources and facilities.
Zelensky emphasized that the issue of national security will be a priority for Ukraine in the coming years. Read also:
