President Vladimir Zelensky believes that Russia continues to fight only because of the stubbornness of its political leadership and the inability to admit mistakes. He said this in an evening address to the people of Ukraine on Monday.

Zelensky recalled that Russia has already lost almost 99 thousand of its soldiers in Ukraine, and soon there will be 100 thousand.
“For what? No one in Moscow has an answer. And they won’t. They wage war and waste the lives of people – other people, not their loved ones, not their own lives, but others – and only because some handful in The Kremlin does not know how to admit mistakes and is terribly afraid of reality,” Zelensky said.
He said that Bakhmut is now the hottest sector of the front.
“Since May, the invaders have been trying to break our Bakhmut, but time is running out – and Bakhmut is breaking not only the Russian army, but also Russian mercenaries who have come to replace the lost army of the invaders. I thank all our fighters who heroically hold the Bakhmut direction, Soledar, Avdiivka, Marinka, the Kremenskoye direction and the entire Donbass,” the president said.
He noted that until 2014, Donbass was one of the most powerful regions in Ukraine, and now Russia is destroying it right to scorched earth.
