During a working trip to the Kherson region, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy visited the frontline positions of the military on the administrative border with the temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
Captain Ruslan Maryshev informed the Head of State about the operational situation and the system of fortifications on the administrative border with the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
At the forefront, Volodymyr Zelenskyy inspected the dugout and trenches and spoke briefly with the servicemen. The President inquired about the conditions of their service.
The Head of State also visited the base camp of the Ukrainian military near the village of Chaplynka, where he got himself acquainted with the conditions of staff accommodation. In the modular town, Volodymyr Zelenskyy inspected the dormitory, sanitary modules and field gym.
In the sanitary part, the Head of State talked to the doctors on duty, asked about the provision of medical equipment and medicines, as well as inquired about the epidemic situation and the course of vaccination among the military.
"We are in the Kherson region today. We see our positions, check readiness from the point of view of equipment, our fighters, our brigades. It is very important to see the state of our military, the state of our army, both technically and psychologically, both on the frontline and in the reserve. This is important in order to understand that the fact that troops are being withdrawn does not mean that the army should not be ready for the possible return of troops to the borders of our country at any moment," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
The Head of State also presented night vision devices and thermal imagers to two military units.
