Vladimir Zelensky on the evening of August 4 traditionally addressed the Ukrainians. The President said that the possibilities of Ukrainian foreign policy – formal and informal – are expanding every day.

In addition, the Ukrainian leader said that on August 4 he spoke with African media representatives. In particular, we are talking about the representatives of Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya and Ghana.
The President stressed that African countries could suffer very seriously due to the destabilization of world markets and global relations, which Russia provoked. The Ukrainian leader said that, in particular, they are talking about the food crisis.
Zelensky also drew attention to the fact that there is a surplus of propaganda of the occupying country in Africa. The President stressed that there is a shortage of truthful information about Russia's war against Ukraine. Zelensky promised to do everything to change this balance.
The first talks in the history of our bilateral relations with the President of Guinea-Bissau took place. I said that Ukraine is ready to be a guarantor of food security for African countries. We discussed the support of our state in international organizations,” Zelensky stressed.
The President also announced new negotiations with the leader of the African country.
Zelensky commented on the delay in financial assistance from the EU
During the evening address, the President also reacted to the delay in financial assistance to Ukraine from the EU. We are talking about 8 billion euros of macro assistance. The Ukrainian leader said it was “either a crime or a mistake.”
