Ukraine will continue its movement on the front lines, as a ceasefire would allow Russia to restore its military strength, states President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a joint interview with Gitanas Nauseda.

The head of state emphasized that Ukraine cannot afford to simply stand still and accumulate, labeling it a big mistake that greatly benefits Russia.

"To stand still means a perpetual war on Ukrainian territory, not on Russian territory. It means an economy in jeopardy. It means no investments because who would invest in a country at war? It's advantageous for Russia. But for us, if we stop, we will allow Russia to rebuild its weapons and potential. That's why we will keep moving, and that's crucial," stated Zelenskyy.

Meanwhile, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General, Valerii Zaluzhnyi, shared insights into the situation on this segment of the front after visiting the positions of servicemen near the city of Kupiansk in the Kharkiv region.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer stated that Ukrainian fighters have not lost their determination to defend their homeland but are lacking in weaponry. In his opinion, the U.S. Congress should approve the provision of aid as requested by President Joe Biden.
