Zelensky Mentions "War" 15 Times in 20-Minute New Year Speech, Putin: Russia "Will Never Retreat"

Falling debris from a Russian drone in Lviv on January 1 left a local museum on fire, city authorities reported. Officials in the Lviv region said air defences were operational and urged residents to seek shelter as Russian UAVs were detected in the area. Russian President Vladimir Putin in his New Year address only made a passing reference to his war in Ukraine. Putin hailed his soldiers as heroes but mostly emphasised unity and shared determination. Volodymyr Zelenskiy in his New Year address said Ukraine had become stronger in overcoming serious difficulties. French President Emmanuel Macron said the European elections in June will decide whether the bloc stands with Ukraine. Ukraine claimed that the US-furnished Patriot missile systems have downed over a dozen Russian Kinzhal missiles in the war. Watch this video to know what’s latest in the ongoing Ukraine-Russia war.
