Zelenskiy visits towns near front line in Ukraine

STORY: "We were in Lysychansk and Soledar," Zelenskiy said in his nightly video.

"I am proud of everyone I met, everyone I shook hands with, everyone with whom I connected with and had expressed my support."

"We brought something for the military," he went on to say. "I will not elaborate in detail on this. And there's something we brought from them to you. This is important – we brought you confidence."

Lysychansk is in the Luhansk region and Soledar is in the Donetsk region -- making up the Donbas, the focus of Russia's advances in eastern Ukraine.
