“For some reason, people treat it like a movie [al conflicto] and he hopes that there are no long pauses in events, that the image before his eyes always changes, that there is some surprise every day. But for us, for our soldiers, this is not a movie. “They are our lives,” said the Ukrainian president.
“This is daily hard work. And not everything will end as quickly as we would like, but we have no right to give up and we will not”Zelensky added.
Likewise, the president thanked Murdoch for his visit, arguing that this is a very important sign of support at a time when the focus is on other world events.
Zelensky also spoke about the current situation on the front, the motivation and determination of the Ukrainian people, as well as the “importance” of keeping the world’s attention on Ukraine.
In early November, the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Valeri Zaluzhny, warned that the Russian-Ukrainian conflict could “drain for years” and “wear down” Ukraine, acknowledging that Russia is in a better position, given its larger population and a more robust economy with greater resources. Furthermore, he acknowledged the lack of progress in the Ukrainian counteroffensive.
For his part, Zelensky expressed his disagreement with Zaluzhny. “We are not at a stalemate. Russia controls the sky. We take care of our military,” said the Ukrainian head of state.
“How to overcome this? The F-16s, we have to wait for the boys to learn [a manejar los cazas], for them to return. When there is air defense on the front, the military advances and uses equipment,” he added.
Meanwhile, the head of the Ukrainian Presidential Office, Andrei Yermak, noted that the fighting could end abruptly, but no one can know when exactly this would happen. “
Compared to a 100 meter race, for example, I think we have already run 70 meters. But these last 30 are the hardest,” declared Yermak.
