"Everything will end not so quickly": Zelenskyi spoke about the war in Ukraine and the feat of the defenders
President Volodymyr Zelenskyi has once again recognized the feat of Ukrainians - the military - who are fighting for Ukraine's freedom at the front. At the same time, he recognized that victory over the aggressor is still far away.
He spoke about this at a meeting with Fox Corporation CEO Lachlan Murdoch, journalists Benjamin Hall (Fox News) and Jerome Starkey (The Sun). His words were quoted by the press service.
It is noted that during the meeting at the Presidential Office, the President told the guests a little about the situation on the battlefield, as well as the high motivation and determination of the people of Ukraine, their faith in victory.
Zelenskyi noted the importance of maintaining the world's attention to the efforts of Ukrainians in the struggle for freedom and their state. In this context, he emphasized that many people now treat it like a movie and expect that there will be no long pauses in the fighting, and the picture before their eyes will always change and "there will be some surprises every day."
"But for us, for our soldiers, this is not a movie. These are our lives, our daily hard work. And it will not end as quickly as we would like, but we have no right to give up and we will not do so," Zelensky said.
The President's Office added that during the meeting, the Ukrainian leader discussed further cooperation with the Western guests. The interlocutors exchanged views on the propaganda narratives of the aggressor Russia, which are also used by opponents of military or any other support for Ukraine. They also discussed Kyiv's vision of a just peace based on the proposed Peace Formula.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, President Zelenskyi announced major military plans for 2024. He said that Ukraine would need a lot of weapons and ammunition.
