Quote: "Now, when it is so difficult, when the conditions are like this, we should all be especially grateful to those who are holding the line in our country, who are carrying out Ukrainian offensive operations, who are on the battlefield, on combat duty in mobile firing groups and in all our other units, who are protecting Ukraine, the life of our state and our independence.

Intense fighting continues at all times on Donetsk [Oblast – ed.] fronts and on the Kupiansk front in Kharkiv Oblast. Our soldiers are also holding their positions in the country's south: this is Zaporizhzhia Oblast, this is our Kherson Oblast.

I want to thank everyone who is giving a decent answer to the Russian terrorist attacks, those repelling the enemy's assaults now – and under such circumstances."

Details: The President, in particular, praised certain fighters, including soldier Oleh Danylchenko, a combat medic of the 110th Separate Mechanised Brigade; senior soldier Oleksii Tokariev and junior sergeant Mykola Tyshchenko, both from the 53rd Separate Mechanised Brigade; senior soldier Yaroslav Bazil and junior sergeants Ihor Ponomarenko and Serhii Kashyrin, all three from the 118th Separate Mechanised Brigade; soldier Andrii Shabelnyk from the 93rd Separate Mechanised Brigade; sergeant Andrii Tarhonii from the 80th Separate Air Assault Brigade; junior sergeant Ihor Shapran from the 92nd Separate Assault Brigade; and soldier Oleksandr Voronenko from the 57th Motorised Brigade.

Background:

  • On the morning of 26 November, the occupiers claimed to have shot down 24 UAVs over Russia. Russians are also studying the new Ukrainian drones, resembling their own Shahed UAVs, that attacked them at night and on the morning of 26 November.
  • On the night of 24-25 November, Russia launched a record number of attack UAVs at Ukraine: a total of 75 Shahed drones, with 74 shot down.
  • According to Ukrainska Pravda, Ukrainian intelligence planned large-scale drone attacks on Russian regions on the night of 25-26 November in retaliation for the unprecedented Shahed drone attack Russia launched on Kyiv the night before.
