In his evening address, Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on Ukrainians to help the Armed Forces and help defend Ukraine's position on the international arena, APA reports citing BBC.
"To win, we must - each and every one - work for this. In particular, those in the rear. Help the army. Protect the needs of our state in all international platforms to which you have access, in communication with foreign journalists, even just with your friends and acquaintances abroad," he said.
He noted that Ukraine is facing difficult weeks.
According to him, the worst fighting situation today is in the Donbas area in the south east of Ukraine.
"Bakhmut, Popasna, Severodonetsk - in this direction the occupiers have concentrated the most activity so far. They have staged a massacre there and are trying to destroy all living things. Literally. No one destroyed Donbas as the Russian military is doing now," said the president.
"But we have no alternative but to fight. To fight and win. To liberate our land and our people. Because the occupiers want to take away from us not just something, but everything we have. Including the right to life for Ukrainians," Zelenskyy said.
