The head of state thanked Ukrainian soldiers who "have turned this page of the war – a page that Putin wanted to dedicate to his offensive but has become another mistake for Russia."

Referring to the permissions from Western countries to strike Russia with their weapons, Zelenskyy said that the world's resolve is opening new prospects for restoring Ukrainian security.
