"President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky had a telephone conversation with President of the European Council Charles Michel... The parties discussed the situation on the Ukrainian-Polish border. Volodymyr Zelensky emphasized that Ukraine is ready for consultations to resolve the situation quickly and fairly," the statement said.

The Head of State also emphasized the importance of continuing the regime of trade liberalization with the EU, as such support is no less important in times of war than support with weapons.

"We appreciate yesterday's agreement on the introduction of the 13th package of EU sanctions against Russia. Today, it is the European Union that sends the right signal to the rest of the world," he emphasized.
