Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a brief video message Friday that Ukrainians have been defending their country for 100 days against Russian aggression and that "victory shall be ours."
"The leaders of parliamentary factions are here, the president's chief of staff is here, Prime Minister of Ukraine [Denys] Shmyhal is here, [presidential adviser Mykhailo] Podolyak is here, the president is here. Our team is much bigger. The Armed Forces of Ukraine are here. Most importantly, our people, the people of our country, are here," Zelensky said.
"We have been defending Ukraine for 100 days. Victory shall be ours. Glory to Ukraine," he added.
The message echoes a video from the president shortly after Russia's invasion first began in February, with Zelensky flanked by his staff on a street in Kyiv, saying "we are all here."
