Support and cooperation from the two countries are significant for Ukraine, Zelensky said.

“Friendly conversation with Dutch Foreign Minister Hoekstra and President Zelensky,” Baerbock tweeted.

“The conversation focused on assistance to Ukraine in the military sphere and reconstruction, as well as on how to solve the blockade of much-needed global food exports from Ukraine,” she added.

Additionally, the Dutch diplomat shared on Twitter: “Excellent conversation with president @ZelenskyyUa, together with @ABaerbock.”

“I emphasised that the Netherlands continues to fully support #Ukraine. With military equipment & crushing sanctions against Russia. Ukraine can count on us when the time for reconstruction arrives,” he noted.

According to UN estimates, 3,459 civilians have died and 3,713 have been injured since Russia launched its war on Ukraine on Feb. 24. The real death toll is thought to be much higher.
