Donbass will be Ukrainian again: Zelenskyy
Meanwhile, as Russian troops move on with their so-called liberation of the Donetsk and Luhansk areas, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has declared that Donbass will be “Ukrainian again” as attacks intensify in the country’s east.
In his nightly speech on Friday, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko claimed ownership of the whole Donbas region, including the cities held by the invaders. Putin’s army were increasing attacks on strategically positioned Severodonetsk and Lysychansk, according to a recent British intelligence report.
Zelenskyy said in his address to the country that the situation in Donbass is “tough,” and that the Russians have concentrated their greatest reserves and artillery in Donetsk and Luhansk as a result. Zelenskyy, on the other hand, claimed that his men were doing everything they could to safeguard every inch of the land and that Donbas will soon be “Ukrainian.”
