Zelensky, on the first anniversary of the war in Ukraine: “It has been a year of pain, sadness, faith and unity”

Ukraine’s President Volodimir Zelensky has indicated this first year of Russia’s war in his country has been marked by “pain, sadness, faith and unity.”

“It has been a year of pain, sadness, faith and unity. And this year, we have remained invincible. We know that 2023 will be the year of our victory!”, said the Ukrainian president.

Likewise, he has highlighted that on February 24 – the date on which his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, gave the order to invade Ukraine – “millions” of Ukrainians “made a choice” by defending the blue and yellow flag .

“We did not flee, but we faced each other. Resisting and fighting,” stressed the Ukrainian leader.

Zelenski has published this message through his profile on his social networks, accompanied by a video with images of the victims of the war, the wounded and displaced, the struggle of the Ukrainian Army soldiers, or the multiple demonstrations in different cities of the world in support of Kiev.

This Friday marks twelve months since the so-called “special military operation” began by the Kremlin, months that have been marked by bloody battles on the front lines, by military, economic and humanitarian aid from the international community, and by the sum of rounds of sanctions against the Russian authorities.

In addition, on the eve of the anniversary, the General Assembly of the United Nations has approved with 141 votes in favor a symbolic resolution –since it is not binding– presented by Ukraine that condemns the Russian invasion.
