President Volodymyr Zelensky said that it is the Armed Forces of Ukraine that are forcing the Russian occupiers to reduce hostilities in the Kiev and Chernigov directions.
He said this in his video message .
“I’m sure you saw the news today that the Russian military department allegedly decided to reduce hostilities in the Kiev and Chernigov directions. Well, the same can be said about Chernobaevka, as if Russian aviation simply decided to fly less, and Russian equipment traveled less. I am grateful to everyone “To our defenders, defenders, to everyone who provides the defense of Kyiv. It is their brave and effective actions that force the enemy to withdraw in this direction,” the head of state said.
At the same time, he stressed that one should not lose vigilance, as the situation has not become easier.
“The scale of the challenges has not diminished. The Russian army still has a significant potential to continue attacks against our state. They still have a lot of equipment and enough absolutely disenfranchised people whom they can send into the cauldron of war. Therefore, we do not lose heart and do not reduce our defensive efforts. Both in the north of our country and in all other regions of Ukraine where Russian troops temporarily entered,” the president said.
Earlier, the Kremlin announced an alleged reduction in the contingent in the Kiev and Chernihiv directions.
On the eve of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, they claimed that the “first stage” of the “special operation” was completed and the transition to attacks in the Donbass.
Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the Presidential Administration, commenting on these maneuvers of the Russian forces, concluded that the Kremlin’s plans to seize the Ukrainian capital “completely failed . “
The Armed Forces of Ukraine liberate the Sumy region, part of the Kharkov and Kiev regions. Russian columns leave from there.
I hated Zelensky, honestly, supporting Yuliya and Petro. But now, he isa hero, my hero!
Without the work of Porky on the Ukrainian military, Ukraine would not have been able to fight as they have. We’ll see if Zelensky continues the persecution of Poroshenko after things settle down.
It is true; you cannot let down your vigilance. Not, until the last cockroach has been eliminated or driven completely out of Ukraine and back into its garbage can called mafia land.
