Ukrainians have united to do the impossible and will definitely win the war unleashed by Russia – for the sake of their own peaceful, free and democratic future.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said this talking with students of Canadian universities, Ukrinform reports.
“We have already surprised the world. We are united to do the impossible. We will definitely win, although no one expected. For the sake of their own peaceful, free and democratic future. And it will be different times,” Zelensky said.
He recalled that June 22 is a special day when Ukrainians remember the feat of our ancestors, thanking them for their life and the opportunity to build a new Ukraine. This is a day of mourning and remembrance of the victims of the war. It was on this day in 1941, at 4 am, that the Nazis began bombing Kyiv.
“These were other times, another occupation, another war, but our spirit, thirst for freedom, struggle and our goal did not change. And on February 24, 2022, when Russian missiles flew at Kyiv and all of Ukraine at 4 in the morning, we stood up to defend our country. Today we are fighting for the future of our children and grandchildren, for their lives and the opportunity to build a new Ukraine,” the President said.
On February 24, the Russian Federation began a new stage of the war against Ukraine – a full-scale invasion. Invaders shell and bomb peaceful cities and villages of Ukraine, torture and kill civilians. The Ukrainian Defense Forces are stubbornly resisting them.
