“We have not forgotten and will not forget any of our cities and people,” said Vladimir Zelenski in his daily evening speech on Sunday.
“Now the Donbas is almost destroyed by Russian attacks, devastated. The proud and glorious Ukrainian Donetsk was humiliated and robbed by the Russian occupation. But Ukraine will return. Definitely. Life will return.
According to the information in TRT Haber, the Ukrainian leader continued his words as follows: 1 The reputation of the Donbas people will return. The opportunity to live safely and happily will return”
Last month, a number of senior Ukrainian officials suggested that the country’s army would launch a counterattack in the south of the country to retake the city of Kherson.
Russia attacked Ukraine on February 24, citing its failure to implement the Minsk agreements designed to give Kiev’s Donetsk and Lugansk regions special status within the Ukrainian state.
In February 2022, the Kremlin recognized the so-called Donbass republics as independent states and demanded that Ukraine declare itself officially a neutral country that would not join any Western military bloc.
