On October 2, Volodymyr Zelenskyy said he had been in contact with Denmark, France and Japan officials. One of the main discussion issues was the referendums held by Russia in the occupied Ukrainian territories. Fumio Kishida and Mette Frederiksen supported Ukraine and recognized the illegality of the events that occurred in the last week of September. Also, Zelenskyy thanked and discussed the unique decision of Japan — the provision of lethal weapons to another country. Zelenskyy and Fumio Kishida also discussed humanitarian and financial assistance. Japan is ready to continue supporting the country suffering from Russian aggression. With Danish prime minister Mette Frederiksen, the head of Ukraine discussed bilateral cooperation and facilitation of Ukraine's accession to NATO and the EU.
Later, the president of Ukraine had a telephone conversation with Emanuel Macron. Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked Macron for condemning the illegal referendums in the Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson regions. The heads of states discussed the possible reactions of the international community to attempts by Russia to illegally annex the territories of Ukraine. Macron noted the success of the Ukrainian armed forces on the front. In response, Zelenskyy thanked Macron for his support and noted that France provides Ukraine with a weapon that changes the course of events. Politicians did not forget about Putin's nuclear threats, so they discussed the need for immediate demilitarization of the Zaporizhzhya NPP.
