"We also discussed how to ensure the flexibility of our defense industry. The needs of the front line are constantly changing and our manufacturers must respond in a timely manner. "Important decisions were made to simplify procurement procedures and component imports, increase tariffs for drones and train operators," Zelensky wrote.

He emphasized that they have also decided to build an integrated electronic warfare control system.

"Another decision is the project to build an integrated electronic warfare control system to protect our fighters and equipment from Russian artillery. It is already being tested in certain areas. We intend to expand it to the entire section", said Zelensky.

The Ukrainian president said through a video message on Sunday that Ukraine has liberated several areas near Kiev for two years.
