The speech translated in full:
“Great people of a great country! The 22nd day of our struggle, our defence against one of the world’s largest armies is over. Which we make smaller every day. Every day. But it still has numbers, equipment and reserves.
“Now we have data that the Russian army is recruiting mercenaries from different international locations, making an attempt to deceive as many younger individuals as attainable into army service. We all know that this won’t assist them.
“So now I warn everyone who will try to join the occupiers on our Ukrainian land. This will be the worst decision of your life. Long life is better than the money you are offered for a short one.
“Our brave defenders proceed to carry all the important thing areas that the enemy is urgent. And reply to each assault. To each blow of the occupiers to our peaceable cities, to our individuals. New Russian conscripts have been taken prisoner. Amongst them are those that refuse to return to Russia. And there are a lot of who usually are not even talked about in Russia. They do not even attempt to take them again. Their demise notifications have been despatched to their households though they’re in captivity and alive.
“All Russians who can hear me now, speak about it. Tell it in Russia. Every mother who knows that her son was sent to war against Ukraine must check where her son is. And especially those who cannot contact their children, who have been told that their children had been killed. And who didn’t receive the bodies. There are phone numbers on the Internet that you can call and find out what is really happening to your children.
“We didn’t plan to take 1000’s of prisoners. We don’t want 13 or any variety of 1000’s of lifeless Russian troopers. We don’t want it. We did not need this warfare. We solely need peace. And we wish you to like your youngsters greater than you concern your authorities.
“I addressed the parliament of Germany today. One of the most influential countries in the world. In Europe. One of the natural leaders of the European continent. I spoke not just as President, but as a Ukrainian citizen. As a European. As someone who has felt for many years that the German state seems to have fenced itself off us with a wall. Invisible yet solid wall.
“Now we have seen Germany struggle for the financial system for many years. For brand new Russian gasoline pipelines and outdated European goals. Desires of some sort of cooperation that Russia has not taken critically for a very long time. We see that the views of the Germans are altering. And this is essential. We see Germany on the lookout for a brand new path. We see how sincerely nearly all of Germans stand in favour of revising the outdated coverage.
“We see that Chancellor Olaf Scholz has a great chance, a great mission – to give Germany a renewed leadership. Give Europe peace. Long-lasting and most importantly – fair. One that guarantees security to every state in Europe and Ukraine in the first place. And I sincerely wish Chancellor Scholz from all Ukrainians, from all Europeans that Germany and its partners succeed in carrying out this mission.
“I’ll proceed such speeches within the parliaments and squares of the accomplice states. Essentially. As a lot because it takes to cease the warfare. To revive our territorial integrity. To return to all of us, Ukrainians and all Europeans, the long-awaited peace.
“I feel that we are being increasingly understood. In Europe, in the world, in different countries. And it gives us more and more support. The one we have been asking for for so long.
“I spoke with French President Macron. We’re strengthening the defence of Ukraine. We coordinated our joint steps in direction of peace. I’m grateful for that.
“I am also grateful to President Biden for his new and effective support for our country. Please, understand: I can’t reveal all the details of this support package and others to you. Because this is our tactic. Our defence. When the enemy does not know what to expect from us. Just as they did not know what would await them after February 24. Didn’t know what we had for the defence and how we were preparing to face the attack.
“The occupiers thought they have been going to Ukraine, which they’d seen earlier than, in 2014-2015. Which they consistently corrupted and which they weren’t afraid of. However we’re totally different. And this enables us to defend ourselves towards a full-scale strike for 22 days already. Every part we now have carried out in a number of years. For our defence. For our ways. For defence ways, which isn’t the time to disclose whereas the warfare is occurring.
“It is not the time to reveal our tactics of negotiations as well. Negotiations for peace, sovereignty, territorial integrity of our state, our freedom. Working more in silence than on television, radio or Facebook. I think this is right.
“At present I visited the great Vlasenko household from Vorzel, Kyiv area, on the hospital. Escaping, they obtained underneath Russian shelling. The eldest daughter, Katya, who is barely 16 years outdated, coated her brother Ihor, who’s 8. The brother obtained out of the automotive and cursed the occupiers. Tetiana, mom, obtained shrapnel wounds. The daddy carried his daughter in his arms.
“Thank God they all survived. Because they stayed together, as a family, and defended each other. I was really moved to talk to them. Probably the most during this war. I sincerely wish health and happiness to this family, the Vlasenko family. Like all other families. I wish you peace and work for it.
“Additionally right now, I awarded 5 workers of the State Emergency Service with the Order of Braveness. Everyone seems to be a hero. Everybody was awarded for selfless actions, for dedication with which they save all of us, save Ukrainians.
“And some more news, very important and, of course, positive. About our economy. About how we bring our country back to life. Right now, wherever security allows. Wherever business can run. Our government has already prepared a decision to expand the lending program for entrepreneurs on the basis of the program “5-7-9%” creating a new opportunity. Any business will be able to get a loan at 0%. For the time of martial law plus 1 month after the war. Then there will be a minimum rate of 5%. And the total loan amount can be up to 60 million hryvnias. So that a wider range of businesses can take advantage of our program.
“The second information is that the Cupboard of Ministers will vote tomorrow for a large-scale discount of rules. There have been greater than 600 permits and licenses for enterprise, and about 20 stay necessary. Solely those who merely can’t be revoked. For instance, radioactive waste administration. So, for the overwhelming majority of companies in Ukraine, the declarative precept will work: you could have introduced the beginning of enterprise and you’re employed freely.
“And the third news, which concerns millions of Ukrainians. This is a special task for the National Bank of Ukraine, for people’s deputies and our government officials. I instructed to find such a legislative opportunity for the state to guarantee 100% of deposits in Ukrainian banks. 100%. Not part, as now, as always, but 100%. The whole deposit. In any bank of our state. So that people do not lose money and are not afraid of it under any circumstances. So I’m waiting for specifics. Draft decision. And I hope that the Verkhovna Rada will not delay the support. Because Ukrainians need it. Ukraine needs this.
“And at last. Our Mariupol, our Kharkiv, our Chernihiv, Kyiv area, Izyum and all our hero cities. That are in a really tough state of affairs. Extraordinarily tough. We’re doing every part. All of us. Completely. Our military, police, SES, humanitarian convoys, church… All our individuals. We won’t go away you. And we won’t forgive them. You may be free. Positively. I do know it. Like all of us on our land.
“Glory to all our heroes! Glory to Ukraine!”
