Zelenskiy promises victory on protest anniversary

STORY: Zelenskiy and first lady Olena Zelenska commemorated the day by visiting the memorial to fallen protesters.

In a video address to the nation, Zelenskiy hailed the contributions made by people of all kinds - from soldiers, firefighters and medics to teachers giving online lessons, villagers cooking for the military, tailors sewing uniforms and farmers ploughing their fields despite the risk. He praised their defiance despite frequent missile strikes, widescale destruction, shortages and rolling blackouts as winter sets in, almost exactly nine months since Russia's invasion.
