Kyiv, Oct 3 (EFE).- Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy said his country’s victory against Russia is “inevitable” as he visited troops on the frontlines in northeastern Ukraine on Tuesday.
“Today, we visited our brigades that are carrying out combat missions in one of the hottest frontlines – the Kupyansk-Lyman region,” Zelenskyy said on his Telegram account.
“Each of our combat brigades, every soldier who defeats the occupiers confirms with each step forward that Ukrainian victory is inevitable,” the president underlined.
During the trip, Zelenskyy paid visits to the 103rd Territorial Defense Brigade, the 68th ‘Oleksa Dovbush’ brigade, and the 25th Airborne ‘Sicheslav’ brigade.
“We discussed the operational situation on the battlefield, current issues, and the requirements with the brigade commanders and combatants,” he added.
Zelenskyy said he personally met with the soldiers, honored them with awards, and shook hands with them.
“You are strong! Thank you for your service!” Zelenskyy told the Ukrainian forces during his visit.
In recent months, Ukraine has intensified its attacks on Russian forces across various frontlines as part of its counter-offensive strategy, mainly focusing on dismantling Russia’s military equipment.
Last month, the Ukrainian military destroyed nearly 947 artillery pieces of the Russian forces, marking the highest tally in the 19 months of the ongoing conflict, according to the Ukrainian military. EFE
