Ukraine’s President Zelenskiy Visits Donbas
“As the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, I want to be with our soldiers in the tough times in #Donbas. Going to the locations of the escalation,” Zelenskiy wrote on Twitter.
Russian forces increase their presence near the border between Ukraine and Russia, and Kyiv has raised the alarm over a build-up of Russian forces.
Russia says the troop movements are defensive.
Zelenskiy called on NATO on Tuesday to lay out a Ukraine path to join the Western military alliance.
Ukraine accuses Russia of annexing Crimea while Russia has denied sending troops and heavy weapons to Donbass.
