Ukraine President Zelensky Visits The Eastern Frontline Amid Rising Tensions With Russia

France 24: Ukraine's Zelensky visits frontline amid rising tensions with Russia

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Thursday visited the country's eastern frontline after a recent surge in clashes between Ukrainian troops and Russia-backed separatists.

The visit came amid rising tensions, with Russian President Vladimir Putin accusing Kiev of provocative action during a phone call with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Zelensky’s visit to positions where a ceasefire "has been systematically violated in recent days" was aimed at "maintaining the fighting spirit", the presidency said in a statement.

“Thank you for keeping people calm and defending our land,” Zelensky told troops during the trip.

"You are a true example of heroism and dedication. We remember every warrior who died defending our state.”
