Good health to you, fellow Ukrainians!
Today - the front. Donetsk region, Zaporizhzhia. Our warriors, our frontline positions, areas of active operations at the front. Today, our warriors have advanced in all directions, and this is a happy day. I wished the guys more days like this.
I paid a visit to the Khortytsia units that distinguished themselves heroically in the Battle of Bakhmut. Well done, warriors! Then our marines - very powerful, very accurate. Thank you for doing your best to save the lives of our warriors. Then Tavria, the south, the front. It was a busy day, a lot of emotions... I was honored to award our warriors, to thank them personally, to shake their hands. Thank you for all your words of support, guys! Thank you for your hugs, very warm ones, to everyone today. And thank you for your chevrons - it is extremely honorable for me, and I will tell about each chevron separately. All our warriors - from soldiers to sailors to generals - are doing a great job!
I presented two Gold Stars of the Hero of Ukraine – to Captain Oleh Olyva, commander of the airmobile company of the 81st separate airborne assault brigade, and Major Serhiy Dudin, deputy commander of the marine battalion of the 35th separate brigade. Indeed, they are great people, thank you!
Meetings with generals... Zubanych, Tarnavskyi, Sodol, Syrskyi. Several operational decisions were made. Once again, we discussed the creation of the Marine Corps, all the details are clear, absolutely clear - organization, training, supply... We are strengthening the Marines and all elements of our Defense Forces, it is a must.
Yesterday, I had talks with partners, including President Biden, primarily about arms supplies.
Today, I was in the area where these weapons will give more power, more protection to Ukrainians' lives. And bring our victory closer, this is the main thing. All our land will be free - all of it.
I thank everyone who is now fighting for Ukraine, who is preparing for combat, who is on combat missions, who is at combat posts... All those who are recovering from injuries... All those who are training our warriors! Thank you all! I am proud of all of you! Glory to you, our heroes!
And eternal blessed memory to all those who gave their lives for Ukraine, each and every one of them!
Glory to Ukraine!
