"We have less air power; we do not possess numerous killer drones that Iran supplies to Russia. We do not have that much artillery, but we do stay strong because we do have truth on our side."

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy added that he want to make “a noble call to all of you to help protect our people, including [the] Ukrainian Muslim community”.

One of those who were in attendance at the meeting was Mustafa Dzhemilev, the leader of the Crimean Tatar community, a Turkic group of Sunni Muslims indigenous to the Crimean Peninsula.
