President Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted the successful work of the Defense Forces in destroying the logistics of the Russian invaders in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine and in the Black Sea.

"I thank all our heroes who destroy logistics in the occupied territory. Who are clearing Crimea and the Black Sea from the presence of the occupier," he emphasized.

Zelenskyy noted that this task is difficult, but "gradually our soldiers are fulfilling it, everyone sees it."

"And, of course, I would like to specially note today all the elements of our Defense and Security Forces of Ukraine that minimize Russia's war potential," the president said.

The Head of State added that the reduction of the Kremlin's ability to make money, and the stronger the sanctions against Russia and the physical destruction of the aggressor country's war potential, the "sooner Ukraine, our Europe, and the whole world will feel peace again."

Defense Forces strike at occupants' targets in Crimea

Earlier today, on March 24, the Strategic Communications Directorate of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that the Defense Forces had struck at Russian occupiers' facilities in Sevastopol. Two Russian landing ships and a communications center were destroyed.

Thus, the Ukrainian military attacked the large landing ships Yamal and Azov. The Russian occupation forces' communications center and several infrastructure facilities of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in the temporarily occupied Sevastopol were also damaged.
