"In these weeks, many have already seen that the Russian system of war has vulnerabilities and that we can exploit these vulnerabilities with our weapons," Zelenskyy said.

He thanked the Armed Forces, SBU, HUR and Ukrainian defense industry for "new Ukrainian long-range capability" including "our own drones."

"Ukraine will now always have its own striking force in the sky," the President added.
