Quote: "Everything that makes our state and everyone who embodies our state – every institution, every official – must feel what kind of Ukraine is behind their backs. How much pain there is in her heart; how much courage she has; what are the memories of people who are no longer there; what kind of symbols it has now. And how differently people now perceive everything that humiliates Ukraine, its strength and hopes."
Details: Zelenskyy says it is a duty to be worthy of the path that Ukraine is on. "[It is necessary] to give Ukraine more strength. More opportunities. Duty [means taking care] of everyone and those close to you. Support. Take care of people. And always bring the result closer. The main result for Ukraine. Ukraine must win. This is the most important thing for everyone. So that [we] do not turn away from the photos of soldiers on the Wall of Remembrance and other memorials," the president said.
Zelenskyy also thanked everyone who works for Ukraine and fights for it with dignity, courage and strength.
