Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky has promised that his country will emerge victorious this year as Russia’s invasion marked the first anniversary today.
Zelensky made this known in a tweet as dawn broke, saying the Ukrainians have made themselves to be “invincible” in what he called “a year of pain, sorrow, faith and unity.”
In a video address, Zelensky also recalled the terror unleashed a year ago by the Russian assault, prompting Europe’s biggest and deadliest war since the Second World War, according to Metro.
He said February 24, 2022, the date of the Russian invasion, was “the longest day of our lives.”
Ukrainians planned memorials, candle vigils and other remembrances for their tens of thousands of dead – a toll growing all the time as fighting rages on.
