“It was an extremely hard night in Kharkiv – more than ten people died. Mykolaiv and Zaporizhzhia were again shelled. The Russian army is spending enormous resources to capture at least one more kilometer in Donbas. Russian officials reiterate threats to Odesa and other cities of Ukraine. We see what is happening at the Zaporizhia NPP. We see what happened in Olenivka [killing of Ukrainian war prisoners – ed.].”
That’s why, according to the head of state, Ukraine should think about how to win on the battlefield, on the political front, in the information war, everywhere.
“We believe in ourselves, we help each other, we protect the interests of Ukraine and we know that there will be peace.”
