President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke in a video conference mode with Ukrainian journalists, who create a continuous round-the-clock telethon "United News" and tell citizens the truth.
The Head of State noted the honest and united work of the media representatives.
"Now, during the war - terrible, tragic, but for Ukraine definitely victorious - you really are an army. A large, powerful army. I believe that today you are a great hope, a foundation, one of those whales on which a man in an ordinary Ukrainian town stands, a man who stops tanks with his bare hands. Today, people like you are holding on to the truth that the Russians do not have,” the President said.
He supported the proposal of journalists to increase the participation of government officials and MPs in the telethon in order to better communicate government initiatives.
The President stressed that the Ukrainian authorities are constantly in dialogue with representatives of Ukraine's partner countries. He thanked journalists for revealing to the world the image of Ukraine, which has been undisclosed so far.
"I want everything we do, everything you do, everything people do, our military, and all those victims were not in vain," said Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The President expressed his conviction that Ukraine would definitely win the war.
"We have definitely become leaders who have agency in the world. And we are not behind the scenes. It seems important to me. It is important that Ukraine has ceased to be a part of the Russian Federation for the whole world," the President said.
