"The military are doing their best to defend the state and observe the ceasefire. It is clear that when they attack our soldiers and there are killed in action, everyone knows that the Army fires back," Zelensky said.

The Ukrainian leader says that members of the government should visit the Joint Forces Operation zone so that the military see they are supported.

"Those who are in power in Ukraine should go to Donbas. At least on a rotating basis. It is very important. It is important, first of all, for soldiers to see that they are supported by the authorities, that the authorities are not hiding in offices, but are there where it is really hard, where people are heroes, where they decide the fate of Ukraine, defending its borders. Who will work in the offices if there is no one to defend the borders," the president said.
