In his speech, Heappey hailed Ukraine’s military achievements.


"Yes, Ukraine's progress is slow, but no one can say that it does not exist. You can point to the Kharkiv breakthrough as an example of success. But look at what Ukraine has now done in the Black Sea! Ukraine has achieved the functional defeat of the Russian Black Sea Fleet," Heappey said.

Commenting on Ukraine's ground counteroffensive, Heappey pointed out that "every inch is important".
