Zelenskyy: Fear reigns in Russia, and rightly so

Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine, has remarked that the unity of Ukrainians contrasts significantly with the fear that reigns in Russia.

Quote: "The Russian terrorists are as pathetic in the new year as they were before. Our defenders were heroic before, and they proved to be so on 1 January as well.

These days have shown how far we have moved from the Russian mentality. Our feeling of unity, sincerity, of life itself contrasts greatly with the fear reigning in Russia.

They are afraid. It shows. And they are right to be afraid. Because they will lose. Drones, missiles and other weapons will not help them. Because we are united, and they are only united in their fear."

Details: Zelenskyy added that Ukraine responds to every Russian attack on the cities of Kherson and Nikopol, Kharkiv Oblast, and all cities and hromadas [an administrative unit designating a town, village or several villages and their adjacent territories], and these responses are "felt very acutely".

He also reported that of the 45 Shahed drones shot down on New Year’s Eve, 33 were hit by the Air Force and 12 by the air defence of the Ground Forces.
