‘We will defend Ukraine until the end': President

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy vowed to defend Ukraine "until the end" in an address to his nation on Saturday. 

Zelenskyy called on Russian people to oppose the war and invited all who want to defend Ukraine to his country.

He said they stood upright against Russia's attacks and successfully repulsed them, and denied the reports that he has left the capital Kyiv.

“We know that we are defending our homeland, our land, and our children. Kyiv and key cities around the capital are controlled by our army,” said Zelenskyy.

“The invaders wanted to block the center of our state and put their puppets there, as in Donetsk. We ruined their plans,” he added.

Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine entered its third day on Saturday, with the latest reports indicating clashes between Russian and Ukrainian troops in Kyiv streets.

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the military intervention Thursday, days after recognizing two separatist-held enclaves in eastern Ukraine.

He claimed that Moscow had no plan to occupy its western neighbor, but wanted to “demilitarize” and “denazify” Ukraine.

Zelenskyy has accused Moscow of trying to install a puppet government, vowing that Ukrainians will defend their country against Russian aggression.
