Zelensky: Whoever’s not fighting on front lines must also help Ukraine win war

Citizens who live in the rear areas must provide very specific help to Ukrainian soldiers as all the forces in the country must now be engaged in battles for the sake of the state’s survival.

President Volodymyr Zelensky emphasized this in the latest video address to the nation, Ukrinform reports.

"Warriors from the frontline who come to the rear cities deserve to see and feel that these are rear cities. That people live there, remembering that there are warriors there, that our warriors here in Donetsk and other directions are fighting for Ukraine, giving their lives for Ukraine. Freedom and independence are not gained by someone there... at the front. This is a common national cause of all those who are fighting and working for victory. Everyone is at war. Ukraine is at war. And those who are not fighting on the frontline must help fight. Not in bars, not in clubs, not by street racing or some kind of ostentatious consumption, but by helping the warriors in a very specific way. To say the least of it," the Ukrainian leader emphasized.

Zelensky insists that all the country’s adrenaline, all the emotions, and all strength “should be there – in the battles for the sake of the state.”

"For the sake of Ukraine is the key principle. For the sake of something else or for the sake of ourselves will be later, when we win. And now it is defense. Now it is war," the president stressed.

As reported, on Monday, President Volodymyr Zelensky was on a working trip to Donetsk region, where he visited the headquarters of the army brigades that run offensive operations in the area of responsibility of the Soledar Operational-Tactical Group, made a stop at the advanced stabilization point that hosts wounded and injured Ukrainian servicemen from the Bakhmut axis, and presented state awards to a number of Ukraine’s defenders.
