Zelenskyy on 2nd anniversary of Russia’s full–scale invasion: There must be one final of this war - victory

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed Ukrainians on the second anniversary of the full-scale Russian invasion.

“We have become 730 days closer to victory. Some are waiting for a prophet to tell them when it will come, but millions of Ukrainians simply remember the words of Kobzar: keep fighting – you are sure to win! And they have been following this for 730 days of dedication and courage. They are forged in the east, south, and north, in all directions where our soldiers fight. 730 days of resilience and endurance. They stand as pillars in all civilian cities and villages. And today, each of us will call our families. To hear loved ones' voices, to wish each other what we've been waiting for. And today, unfortunately, each of us has someone to mourn. And to honor their memory. And together, we bow our heads,” Zelenskyy stated.

According to the President, “Ukraine has already passed 730 days of pain, but at the same time, 730 days of hope. For the highest justice, which lies in the fact that we all have different stories of the beginning of the war, but there must be one final of this war - victory.”

“And remembering everything we've been through these two years – you understand: there can be no other way. Remembering what Ukrainians have already done – you know that we can definitely do it. It's within our power. We will succeed. And here, in this place, you understand best – metal may not withstand, but Ukrainians do. You can burn the plane, but you cannot destroy the dream. The dream with which each of us falls asleep and wakes up for 730 days, with which you, all our citizens, all Ukrainians fall asleep,” he said.

The Head of State said that today Ukrainians continue their heroic battle for life.

“People, to whom I always address in my speeches: ‘Great people, of a great country.’ I am incredibly proud of each of you. I admire each of you. I believe in each of you. Any normal person wants the war to end. But none of us will allow our Ukraine to end,” Zelenskyy noted.

“That's why when it comes to ‘ending the war,’ we always add – ‘on our terms.’ That's why next to the word ‘peace,’ the word ‘just’ always sounds. That's why in future history, next to the word ‘Ukraine,’ the word ‘independent’ will always stand,” the President concluded.
