On the afternoon of the 19th local time, Ukrainian President Zelensky held an annual press conference in Kiev.

At the meeting, Zelensky said that Ukraine’s various goals and tasks in 2023 have been completed, but it is currently impossible to predict whether the Russia-Ukraine conflict will end in 2024, and negotiations with Russia are not an issue of urgent significance at the moment.

Zelensky promised at the press conference that Ukraine will produce one million drones next year and will also develop 155 mm caliber artillery shells. In addition, Zelensky said that NATO did not invite Ukraine to join the organization.
