Policy: – The occupier who invaded the Kharkiv region is going to be crushed by all possible means, Zelenskyj says in his daily video speech.

– Artillery, drones and our infantry work quite accurately, the president continues.

It was on Friday last week that Russian forces surprised the Ukrainians with an offensive in the Kharkiv region. Since then, Ukrainian forces have come under massive attack. Ukrainian defense officials have said that the situation is difficult, and Ukrainian forces have been withdrawn in several places in the region.

But some Western military experts believe they are now seeing signs that the Russian advance is slowing, according to the German news agency DPA.

Zelenskyy repeats in his speech that Ukraine needs more weapons and ammunition.

– The world has the strength, it has the weapons, it has the ability to force Russia to make peace – a just peace, he continues.
