Ukrainian President Zelensky has always maintained that they won’t cede any territory to Russia.

And in a recent poll, his brave countrymen apparently agree.

Some 82% of Ukrainians believe that Ukraine should not give away any territory as part of a peace deal with Russia, even though it meant it prolonged the war.

Meanwhile, Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine has entered ‘its most active phase,’ Ukrainian defense ministry spokesman Oleksandr Motuzyanyk says.

Russian forces are trying to encircle Ukrainian troops in two cities straddling the Siversky Donets river in eastern Ukraine – Severodonetsk and Lysychansk.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says Kyiv remains ready for an exchange of prisoners with Russia.
