The president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced „fast and powerful” progress for his army in the south of the country, where scores of localities have been reclaimed this week from the Russian troops.

According to AFP, in his daily address posted on social networks, Zelenskyy promised that the Ukrainian troops would not stop and that it was only a matter of time until the Russians would be driven out of the entire Ukrainian territory. On the other hand, the Ukrainian president welcomed India’s support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, voiced during a telephone call with PM Narendra Modi.

Previously, Kyiv had criticised New Delhi over its neutrality. Meanwhile, in Brussels, EU countries Wednesday reached a political agreement on the implementation of an 8th package of sanctions against Russia, this one in response to the illegal annexation of 4 Ukrainian regions.
