Last week our heroic armed forces dealt powerful blows to the enemy. Heavy losses, Zelensky said in a video address Saturday evening.
He claims that 16,000 Russian soldiers have been killed so far. On Friday, the Russian Defense Ministry said it had lost 1,351 soldiers in Ukraine and that 3,825 had been wounded, according to the BBC.
The information has not been confirmed by independent sources.
– I am grateful to our defenders who showed the occupiers that “the sea is not calm for them even if there is no storm.” There will be a fire, said Zelensky.
Extremely necessary with conversations
To limit Russia’s actions, he believes there is a simple and logical solution:
Conversations are necessary. meaningful. immediately. Exhibition. The Chair said for the sake of the result, not for the sake of delay.
He added that the suffering in the besieged port city of Mariupol was getting worse. Tens of thousands of people are trapped without food, water or heating.
The situation in the city is still dire. Absolutely tragic. Zelensky said the Russian military does not allow humanitarian aid into the city.
The president also talked about Russian propaganda.
– You all know exactly how big the state propaganda system Russia has built. Perhaps no one else in the world has spent such huge sums on lies, Zelensky said.
But he added that Moscow did not take into account that this effort does not guarantee a result.
Where it is necessary to pave the path of lies with money, the result is not guaranteed. He said that the path of truth is difficult, but truth creates its own path.
