In his nightly video address, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said brutal fighting continued in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region, particularly around the city of Sievierodonetsk.

“The longer the war goes on, the more vile, shameful and cynical things Russia is forever inscribing in its history,” he added.

Zelenskyy went on to thank the United States for agreeing to send advanced rocket systems. “These weapons really can save the lives of our people and defend our land,” he said.

According to Zelenskyy, Ukraine expects to receive modern combat systems from other countries and noted that Sweden announced Thursday it was sending a new package of military assistance. Earlier this week, Germany also announced it would send additional weapons to Ukraine.
