President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed that the Ukrainian servicemen control the situation on the borders of our state, but at the moment it cannot be stated that the Russian Federation is fully withdrawing its troops. The Head of State said this during the Marathon of Unity "#UArazom" while being in Mariupol, Donetsk region.
"The situation on our borders, on the touch line with the temporarily occupied territories, on the borders with Russia and Belarus is controlled by our military. We do not see any changes yet. We see a large concentration of troops, it has not changed in recent weeks. We see these or those small rotations. I would not call these rotations today the withdrawal of troops by the Russian Federation. We can't state that," he said.
According to Volodymyr Zelenskyy, it is too early to draw conclusions.
According to the President, the Ukrainian state continues to be active in the political and diplomatic sphere. After all, it is through diplomatic channels that signals are coming about the possible risks of Russian groups’ buildup at the borders and escalation.
"Diplomacy has worked very well in terms of strengthening the Ukrainian army. This is also an important result. After all, thanks to our people, we have such an army, but we shouldn’t forget about the equipment," the President said.
