Russia Ukraine war: Volodymyr Zelensky said he will defend capital Kyiv on the ground.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has released two consecutive self-shot videos from Kyiv vowing to defend the capital against the Russian invasion on the ground.

In the first video released on Friday, Zelensky was seen alongside key aides in central Kyiv.

“Good evening to you all. The head of the government is here. The head of the president’s office is here. Prime Minister Shmyhal is here. Adviser Podoliak is here. The President is here. We’re all here. Our soldiers are here. Our citizens are here. We are all here defending our independence, our country, and it will stay that way. Glory to the men and women defending us. Glory to Ukraine. Glory to the heroes,” Zelensky says in a video shared by Ukraine’s Ministry of Defence.


Wearing olive green military-style clothing, he was seen on the streets shooting the video with his advisers and top officials.


In another video released today, Zelensky dismissed claims that he had fled Kyiv or surrendered and reasserted that they will defend Ukraine.
