Ukrainian defenders retain initiative in east and south - Zelensky

Ukrainian defenders retain the initiative on the battlefield in the east and south of Ukraine.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said this in his video address to citizens, Ukrinform reports.

"Today, during the day, an air alert was announced in most regions of Ukraine. There are new drones and enemy aircraft shot down. Active hostilities continue in the east and south of Ukraine. Our Armed Forces retain the initiative," Zelensky said.

He commended the fighters of the 25th Separate Airborne Brigade for their skillful and thoughtful actions in destroying the enemy in the eastern direction.

"I am also thankful to the warriors of the 60th separate infantry brigade, whose units are showing good results in the Kherson region. Only since the beginning of October, the fighters of this brigade "trophied" more than 30 units of Russian armored vehicles, a thousand projectiles for tanks and three "Giatsint" cannons. All these weapons will definitely help liberate our land," Zelensky said.

He also thanked the fighters of the 59th Separate Motorized Infantry Brigade named after Yakiv Handziuk. This week, the boys showed excellent results in destroying enemy equipment and ammunition.
