Zelensky: Our forces are destroying the enemy in east, south

President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Tuesday that Ukraine's forces were destroying Russian forces in the two main theaters of the conflict, the east and south of the country.

"At this time, our soldiers in the south and east are actively destroying the enemy, physically cleansing Ukraine," Zelensky said in his nightly video message.

"A defense against terror means destroying terrorists. And it is a guarantee that the state of evil will never have the opportunity to bring evil to Ukraine."

Referring to a conference to take place in London on post-war recovery, Zelensky said rebuilding Ukraine was "a vehicle and a guarantee of security" and a means of "protecting against any repetition of Russian aggression."
