Quote: „Kharkiv Oblast is the main focus. Today [10 May – ed.], Russian troops tried to expand operations against Ukraine. We are aware of the size of the invaders‘ forces and see their plan. Our soldiers, our artillery, our drones are retaliating against the invaders. I am grateful to each of our soldiers, each sergeant, each officer who are defending our positions in the best way possible.

We are adding more troops to Kharkiv fronts. Both along our state border and along the entire frontline, we will invariably destroy the invaders to disrupt any Russian offensive intentions.“

Details: The Ukrainian president said that he had been briefed by Commander-in-Chief Oleksandr Syrskyi both in the morning and in the evening.

He is also in constant contact with the Defence Minister: „We are providing everything necessary to protect our positions.“

Zelenskyy stressed that it is important for partners to support the Armed Forces and Ukraine’s resilience with timely supplies: „The package that really helps is the weapons brought to Ukraine, not just the announcement of the package. I thank every leader who perceives the situation in this way.“
