The country withstood and successfully repulsed enemy attacks. Fighting continues in many cities and districts of the state.

This was announced by President Vladimir Zelensky on the third day of the war unleashed by Russia.

 "The occupiers wanted to block the center of our state and put their puppets here, as in Donetsk. We broke their plan. They did not get any advantage over us. On our streets, in the skies of Kiev, in Vasilkov, in Vyshgorod, even in the surrounding fields continued the real fight for Kyiv. The enemy used everything against us: missiles, fighters, drones, artillery, armored vehicles, saboteurs, landing. The occupiers are hitting residential areas, using jet artillery as well, trying to destroy energy facilities. They have very vile tactics. " , - the president noted.

Zelensky stressed that the houses destroyed by missiles and artillery are the final argument for the world to stop the invasion with us.

 "Frankly speaking, the people of Ukraine already deserve and have the right to join the European Union. This will be the key evidence of the support of our country. The crucial moment has come to end the long-standing strategic discussion once and for all and to decide on Ukraine's membership in the EU. I discussed this today with Charles Michel, Ursula von der Leyen, Emmanuel Macron, "he added.

Defense weapons and equipment are already coming to Ukraine. There is already full support from EU countries to disconnect Russia from SWIFT.

"I hope that Germany and Hungary will have the courage to support this decision. We have the courage to defend our homeland, to defend Europe," he said.

The occupiers are being severely rebuffed in every city.

"Uman, Odessa, Kherson, Mykolaiv, Donbass, Kharkiv, Sumy, Chernihiv, Kyiv - wherever the enemy kills our people, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are doing everything to stop and destroy the occupiers. Lviv and other cities in western and central Ukraine that are under the air attack are holding steady. Every Ukrainian needs to remember one thing. If you can stop and destroy the occupiers - do it. Anyone who can return to Ukraine - come back to defend Ukraine. And then we will have a lot of work to rebuild her!", appealedthe president.

Ukrainians abroad can also help.

"All friends of Ukraine who want to join the defense - come, we will give you weapons! All the details of how to implement it will be announced soon. To all who defend Ukraine today - glory! You are heroes!" - the head of state addressed.

Zelensky has already decided to posthumously award the title of Hero of Ukraine to Vitaliy Volodymyrovych Skakun, a sapper of the 35th Separate Marine Brigade. He blew up the bridge at the cost of his own life so that the enemy would not advance further.

"And now I want absolutely everyone in Russia to hear me. Thousands of victims. Hundreds of prisoners who just can't understand why they were sent to Ukraine. They were sent to die. The sooner you tell your government that the war must stop immediately, the more of your people will survive. We see that there are protests against the war. We know that many in Russia are now shocked by the meanness and cruelty of the Russian government. This is a very correct reaction. Thank you for this reaction. Thank you Leonid Parfenov, Dmitry Muratov, Yuri Dudyu, Leah Akhedzhakova, Valery Meladze and thousands, thousands of other Russians whose consciences sound loud. Just stop those who lie to you. We need to end this war. We can live in peace - in a global world, in a human world, "the president of Ukraine said.
