Quote from Zelenskyy: "As for the situation on the front, for us everything’s clear. So let me repeat once again, for those who only understand Russian. [Zelenskyy switched to Russian here - ed.]
If you want to live, flee. If you want to live, surrender. If you want to live, fight for your freedom on the streets of your country. Everything has already been taken away from you. Or do some of you own oil rigs? Palaces? Vineyards Or, maybe, yachts? Or a bank?
What are you even fighting for now? You only have your credit payments, some food to tide you over in the evenings, and now you also have mobilisation. Fight for what’s yours! Stay away from our land, our soul and our culture."
Background: President Zelenskyy said that the defenders of Ukraine are making gains and liberating Ukrainian land from Russian occupation.
Oleh Syniehubov, the Head of the Kharkiv Oblast Military Administration, has confirmed that the village of Kupiansk-Vuzlovyi, located on the bank of the Oskil river, has been liberated from the occupiers.
