Right here, in the fight for such cities, for such towns. In the battle for our Trostyanets, other cities of the Sumy region, in the battle for the Kyiv region, Hostomel, in the battles for our Chernihiv region – our people proved that this occupier will be defeated by us, by our morale, by our Ukrainian character. Our people proved it, our warriors proved it.
