Quote: "Now the Russian army is trying to strengthen its positions in the occupied areas in the south of our country, and is ramping up activity there.

Some units of Russian forces are being transferred from their positions in eastern Ukraine to its southern regions – to Kherson Oblast and Zaporizhzhia Oblast… But in vain. This will not help them.

None of the Russian strikes go unanswered by our military and our intelligence officers. The Armed Forces of Ukraine are prepared to respond to any new actions the occupiers might carry out."

Details: Zelenskyy also stressed that from a strategic point of view, "Russia has no chance of winning this war".

"And it is necessary to hold on, so that the terrorist state is defeated tactically, too," Zelenskyy said.

Earlier: On the evening of Sunday, 31 July, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that Russia has transferred several units of its troops from the Sloviansk front to the Zaporizhzhia front.
