Quote: "The enemy has not succeeded on any of their strategic fronts. They are desperate. They are doomed.
Kyiv survived last night and withstood another air strike. Our air defence has done its work.
Kherson, Izyum, and all other cities that the enemy struck – and struck heavily – from the air have not given in. Chernihiv, Sumy, and Mykolayiv are holding the line. Odessa. They want to destroy Odessa as well. But they will only see the bottom of Black Sea. Because they have hit the bottom.
Russia targeted the Cathedral of the Assumption [Uspensky Sobor] in Kharkiv. One of the oldest Orthodox monuments of the city and of the country. During wartime, the Cathedral offered shelter to Kharkiv residents. Shelter for everyone: the faithful and non-believers alike. For everyone: because we are all equal.
It is a holy place. Now, wrecked by the war. Even this does not deter them! They count on the fact that God’s retribution isn’t instant. But He sees. And answers. You cannot hide from His answers. No bunker can protect you from God’s answers."
Details: Zelenskyy said that the cathedral will be restored, as each building, each street, and each city wrecked by the war will be. He is convinced that Russia will pay for everything it has destroyed in Ukraine.
And Ukraine will never forget those who have died.
According to Zelenskyy, "You came to destroy our cities. To destroy our people. To take away everything that we hold dear. You are cutting off light, water, and heating for ordinary Ukrainians. You are leaving people stranded without food and medicine. You are firing on potential evacuation routes.
There is no weapon you would not deploy against the Ukrainian people.
And now you are telling your media propaganda that you are going to send the so-called "humanitarian columns" to Ukraine…
Remember: When millions of people forsake you, nothing will save you."
