Following his wartime visit to the United States, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy struck a further aggressive tone upon his arrival in the capital of his country.
Even as Russia continued its attacks across the nation, Zelenskyy said on Friday that Ukrainian forces are “moving toward victory.”
Zelenskyy declared that he is in his Kyiv office in a Telegram post and promised that “we’ll conquer everything.”
Zelenksyy’s return occurs in the midst of unrelenting Russian airstrikes, rocket and mortar fire and artillery fire on the eastern and southern fronts of Ukraine.
The Ukrainian military said Russian forces fired several rocket launchers “more than 70 times” across Ukrainian territory overnight while fierce battles raged around the city of Bakhmut in the eastern Donetsk region.
