President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, during his visit to Sweden on Saturday, initiated discussions with Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson.

As Swedish media Expressen convey, Kristersson welcomed Zelenskyy at his country residence, Harpsund. The Ukrainian delegation included several ministers, although specific names have not been disclosed.

Zelenskyy, in anticipation of the talks with the Swedish Prime Minister, emphasized that the primary focus would be on defense cooperation, particularly the “powerful” Swedish infantry combat vehicles CV-90.

“Our soldiers are already effectively utilizing them on the frontlines. We also plan to produce CV-90 in Ukraine,” he stated.
