Zelensky also described the reconstruction of Ukraine as one of Europe’s biggest economic projects. “We have to become––and we will become, as there is no other option––a leader in building modern green energy. This will allow us to create a decentralized energy system that cannot be destroyed by anything, any missile strikes,” Zelensky told the parliament, pledging to develop nuclear and thermal power plants.
