Ukrainian President makes Independence Day address
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Wednesday that Ukrainians are “fighting for their destiny.”
He said this in a speech to mark Independence Day, which coincided with the six-month mark since the Russian invasion began.
Speaking from Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) in Kyiv, Zelensky said that Ukraine will fight for its land “to the last”.
According to him, if before the end of the war used to mean the coming of peace, now Ukraine needs a victory.
“And we will only raise our hands up once – to celebrate our victory. All over Ukraine,” Zelensky said, “Because we don’t bargain our lands and our people. For us, Ukraine is all of Ukraine. All 25 regions, with no concessions or compromises.”
Zelensky said that Ukraine will regain control over Donbass and Crimea.
