Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Russia has not found a way to break the will of his country, which has been steadfast since the beginning of the war.
This came in a video clip that Zelensky posted on his Telegram channel late Thursday.
The Ukrainian president added, “We endured 9 months of total war, and Russia did not find a way to break our will, and will not find it.”
He continued, “No matter how difficult it is, we are keeping the country’s main borders, and we are also preparing to advance in some directions.”

“The Russian army began attacking civilian and energy infrastructure after its failure on the front lines,” Zelensky said.
He pointed out that “these terrorist operations began immediately after the Russian army was forced to flee from the Kherson region (south).”
He emphasized that “problems with drinking water and electricity still exist across Ukraine due to the intensified Russian missile attacks on vital energy infrastructure.”
He said that “drinking water problems exist in 15 regions, while regions such as Kyiv, Kirovohrad, Dnipropetrovsk, Lviv, Poltava and Kharkiv suffer from a dire situation.”
“We are gradually working to restore electricity, heating, water supply and communications,” the Ukrainian president noted.
For its part, Russia denied, on Thursday, the targeting of civilian infrastructure in Ukraine, and the presidential spokesman, “Kremlin” Dmitry Peskov, said, “Russia does not carry out strikes on civilian infrastructure in Ukraine.”
