Zelensky stressed that the enemies failed to break the defense of Ukrainian capital, so they are sending hundreds of saboteurs. However, the president assured that they are all being neutralized.

As reported, Interior Minister Denys Monastyrsky said that more than 100 mobile groups have been formed in Kyiv to patrol the city, locate and neutralize Russia’s sabotage and reconnaissance groups.
