President Volodymyr Zelensky visited troops of combat units deployed in the Melitopol direction in Zaporizhzhia Oblast on Aug. 15, the presidential office reported.

"Today we continued our work and meetings with our defenders in the Melitopol direction," Zelensky wrote on his Telegram channel.

"Our warriors are able to provide true freedom for Ukraine. Thank you for your steadfastness and for every meter of progress!"

The president met with the commander of the operational-strategic group of troops "Tavria" Oleksandr Tarnavskyi and paid a visit to the 3rd Operational Brigade, the 15th Brigade of the Operational Assignment named after the Hero of Ukraine Lieutenant Bohdan Zavada, the 46th Separate Airmobile Brigade, and the 47th, 65th, 116th, 117th, and the 118th separate mechanized brigades.
