This week, the Russian army fired 258 times on 30 settlements of Kherson region. The enemy is capable of nothing but destruction, including in their own country.
President Volodymyr Zelensky said this during an evening video address to the nation, reports Ukrinform.
"That day, like every other day, the occupiers again shelled Kherson and a number of communities across the region. In just one week, the enemy fired 258 times on 30 settlements of Kherson region. The Russian army also damaged the pumping station that provided water to Mykolaiv," Zelensky said.
The president noted that sowing destruction everywhere is the true essence of those people who accidentally took over Russia, and in 20 years their country is dominated by destruction, which occurs only after wars.
"And this is not a war – they passed this. They are capable of nothing but destruction. This is all they leave behind. And what they are doing now against Ukraine is their attempt to take revenge. To take revenge for the fact that Ukrainians have repeatedly defended themselves from them. Ukraine will never be a place for destruction. Ukraine will never accept orders from these Moscow comrades," Zelensky said.
The president emphasized that Ukraine will do everything to restore every facility, every house, every enterprise destroyed by the occupiers.
