The President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelensky, has praised the resistance of the Ukrainian soldiers and citizens in the face of Russia's offensive, whom he has stated has the "second Army in the world".
Thus, one hundred days after the start of the war in Ukraine -on February 24-, Zelenski has emphasized that Russia has hardly achieved any of the strategic objectives that had been set at the beginning of the offensive.
"During this time, the enemy has not been able to achieve a single strategic objective, but tried to unload its impotence on civilian infrastructure and people," the president said on his Telegram channel.
"In these 100 days, Ukraine has done what seemed impossible, what many did not want to believe," the president settled.
Already on Thursday, Zelenski reported that some 125,000 square kilometers of Ukrainian territory are under the control of Russian troops, which represents about 20 percent of the country. Despite the fact that the Russian Army has withdrawn from a third of the occupied places, "about 300,000 square kilometers are mined," according to the president.
Zelenski also took the opportunity to ask again for defensive support. "We need more weapons for Ukraine, modern weapons that will ensure the superiority of our state against Russia in this war," he insisted.
