Russia-Ukraine War : ‘I’m in Kyiv… not afraid,’ says Zelensky with the advancement of Russian troops.
Ukraine-Russia War : “We are all on the ground. We are all working. Everyone is where they should be,” President Zelensky stated in the video.
Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky disclosed specifics of the location from which he has been operating because the military attack began nearly two weeks ago when Russian soldiers drew closer to the country’s capital of Kyiv.
Zelensky stated in an eight-minute video that he would remain in Kyiv and work with his squad to protect his country. “On Bankova Street. I am not hiding. And I am not afraid of anyone. As much as it takes to win this Patriotic War of ours,” he captioned within the video.
“We are all on the ground. We are all working. Everyone is where they should be. I am in Kyiv. My team is with me. The territorial defense is on the ground. The servicemen are in positions. Doctors, rescuers, transporters, diplomats, journalists.. everyone. We are all at war. We all contribute to our victory, which will definitely be achieved,” the Ukrainian President stated in the video.
Before coming into office in 2018, Zelensky worked as a comedian and turned the camera out the window to check what seemed to be nightfall in Kyiv, as well as the Gorodetsky House, a listed landmark across the street from his office.
The video was shared on Instagram by his official account, and it comes amid reports that he and his family have fled to Poland.
On February 24, Russian forces launched a full-fledged invasion of Ukraine ever since Zelensky has rallied citizens to stay defiant in the face of Russian aggression.
Ukraine’s military intelligence stated earlier in the day that a Russian general had been killed in the beleaguered city of Kharkiv, making him the second Russian senior leader to die in the attack.
Negotiators in the US Congress are close to reaching an agreement to supply Ukraine with billions of dollars in emergency relief. The White House requested a ten-billion-dollar budget. However, the World Bank has sanctioned $723 million in grants and loans for Ukraine, distributed in the coming days.
