DIRECT |  Zelensky, on the first anniversary of the war in Ukraine: "2023 will be the year of our victory"

If the Russian troops manage to take Bakhmut, the Ukrainian city that has become the epicenter of the fighting, they will have the “open road” to capture other key cities in the east of the country, warned the president of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelensky, in an interview with the chain CNN. The Ukrainian president defended his decision to keep troops of their country in this battered city where dozens of soldiers from both sides have died. “We understand that after Bakhmut (the Russians) they could go further. They could go to Kramatorsk, they could go to Sloviansk, it would be an open path for the Russians after Bakhmut to reach other cities in Ukraine, in the direction of Donetsk,” Zelensky explained.
