Ukraine, Zelensky: “Counteroffensive? You’ll understand when it happens”

The president: “It’s not a film. The result will be the liberation of our territories”

The result of the counter-offensive should be the liberation of the Ukrainian territories and, when that happens, “you will understand”. This was stated by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at a press conference with President Alan Karis, Ukrainska Pravda reports. “This is not a film, it’s hard for me to say what the counteroffensive will be like. The main thing is that Russia sees it, and not only sees it, but feels it,” he said. The liberation of our territories will exist and will be the result of the counter-offensive. When that happens, you’ll know it’s happening.”

The Ukrainian president has ordered an inspection of all bomb shelters after three people were killed in a Russian air raid in Kiev because the bunkers were closed. Zelensky said he had asked the Minister of Strategic Industries and the Interior Minister to conduct an audit of all shelters, which must be accessible at all times. In yesterday’s raid, a nine-year-old girl, her mother and another woman who had found the bunker barred were killed.
