President Zelensky addressed the citizens of Ukraine at the end of the 117th day of the war with Russia, the presidential press service reports.
"Step by step we are moving every important week and every day we do everything so that no one has any doubts that Ukraine deserves the candidacy. Every day we prove that we are already part of a united European value space.
I am grateful to all the people's deputies who supported our European integration. I would like to note the vote for the Council of Europe Convention on the Prevention of Violence against Women and Domestic Violence. This is an obligation to protect against violence and various forms of discrimination.
I also want to thank the deputies who supported the law “On Waste Management”. This is an important environmental document. An anti-corruption strategy has also been adopted – this is important.
I hope that the Verkhovna Rada will continue to work with the same significant result,” Zelensky said.
The President also spoke about the situation at the front.
< p>"As I expected, Russia is very nervous about our activity. Again the shelling of Kharkov, Odessa, again attempts at brutal offensive operations in the Donbass. It is an evil that can only be appeased on the battlefield. We defend Lisichansk, Severodonetsk. This whole region is the most difficult, there are the most difficult battles. But there are our strong guys and girls. The occupiers receive answers to their actions against us. We are grateful to the army and intelligence that provide this.
In the evening, I signed another decree on rewarding our defenders and defenders. 220 combatants were awarded state awards. 27 of them posthumously”, – Zelensky said.
