“Heroic Kharkiv. The occupiers carry out a constant and cynical shelling of the city. They terrorize civilians, destroy houses and infrastructure. But our Kharkiv, like all of Ukraine, knows how to defend itself. Wounded, tired, yet not defeated. It stands strong and fights. And it once again proves to the enemies that they cannot break or defeat our people and our cities,” Zelensky wrote.
