Counteroffensive and defensive actions are being taken in Ukraine. At what stage, I will not disclose in detail. I believe that we will definitely feel this," Zelensky said.

According to the head of state, he would not trust "various Telegram channels, and especially Putin."

He added that he was in daily contact with the command – generals Syrskyi, Tarnavskyi, Moskaliov, Nayev, and Zaluzhnyi.

"Everyone is in a positive mood right now – pass that on to Putin," Zelensky concluded.
