Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has promised that his country “will not give up” in its fight against Russia.
“We will protect what is ours,” he wrote on Telegram on July 24, to mark five months since Russia launched its massive military incursion into Ukraine on February 24. “We will win.”
“The war has not broken Ukraine and will not break it,” he added.
Zelenskiy also repeated calls for the international community to supply the weaponry Ukraine needs to repel the Russian attack and free the Ukrainian territory that has been occupied by Moscow.
Thousands of Ukrainians have been killed and millions displaced since Moscow launched what it calls its “special military operation” in Ukraine.
Zelenskiy stressed that the war over the last five months has been a continuation of Russia’s original attack on his country eight years ago, when Moscow annexed the Ukrainian Black Sea region of Crimea and fomented a separatist conflict in parts of eastern Ukraine.
