President Volodymyr Zelensky promised that all of Ukraine would be free, including the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, as well as Crimea. He stated this in his video message on the evening of September 18.
«Izyum, Balakleya, Kupyansk and Kharkiv region as a whole are the cities and communities that we liberated. These words are now being spoken. They sound everywhere. Mariupol, Melitopol and Kherson also sound, but they will sound even more often and louder when we release them. Donetsk, Gorlovka and Lugansk – and they will sound. Dzhankoy, Evpatoria, Yalta – and they too. Mandatory», — emphasized the Ukrainian leader.
He noted that Ukrainians do not talk about someone else's and only Ukrainian words are heard for 207 days of the war. Zelensky expressed gratitude to everyone who makes them sound at the front and in the rear.
«Perhaps now it seems to some of you that after a series of victories we have a certain lull. But it's not quiet. This is preparation for the next series of very important words for all of us, which must be heard. Because Ukraine must be free – all», — the president added.
