He stated that Ukrainians now expect even greater results from the SBU.

There is no place for the occupiers' military ships in the western part of the Black Sea and near the temporarily occupied Crimea, he said.

"But let them also lose the ability to operate in the eastern part of the Black Sea. Every occupier already understands very clearly that they cannot feel safe anywhere on Ukrainian land," said Zelenskyy.
