According to president Volodymyr Zelenksy, Russia does not have jurisdiction over Bakhmut.
The city, located in Ukaine’s eastern Donetsk-Oblast region, “is not occupied by [the] Russian Federation as of today,” said to Mr. Zelenksy, who was speaking at the G7 conference in Japan.
We no longer have simple questions or straightforward solutions, he continued.
“Because we have a complicated enemy in the form of a criminal and terrorist neighbour.”Thanks to the bravery of our people, our soldiers, and our cunning, we are fighting and staying young. No one is being abandoned to perish.
