Zelensky: 'It's not the enemy leaving. It's Ukrainians who drive the occupiers out at high cost'

President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his evening address that "today we have good news from the south," referring to the Armed Forces liberating 41 settlements in the south.

According to him, the National Police entered the liberated villages of Kalynivske, Bobrovyi Kut, Yevhenivku, Kotsiubynske, and Snihurivka on Nov. 10, and stabilization measures began there.

"We should all remember now and always what this movement means, we should remember that every step (forward has a cost), the lives of our warriors," he said. "It's not the enemy leaving. It's Ukrainians who drive the occupiers out at high cost."

As the president spoke, reports of Ukrainian forces taking the outskirts of Kherson have been made public by unofficial Ukrainian and Russian reports.

“We truly need popular support, especially during wartime. Being not dependent on a single money bag telling journalists what to do has always been quite a task in Ukraine. In wartime, that’s even more important.”
