Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky paid a visit to wounded soldiers receiving medical treatment at a hospital in Kyiv on Friday (June 3rd) as Russia’s attack on its neighbor entered its 100th day.
The video released by the Ukrainian Presidential Press Service shows Zelenski talking to wounded soldiers, according to Reuters.
Zelenski visits wounded soldiers at a hospital in Kyiv, wounding about 500 soldiers every day
Earlier this month, Zelenski said as many as 100 soldiers were killed in action each day and about 500 were injured.
During his visit to the hospital, Zelenski rewarded the doctors, expressing his gratitude for their work both in hospitals and in the field.
Tens of thousands have died, millions have been uprooted from their homes, and the global economy has been shaken since Moscow’s forces were ousted from the capital Kyiv in the early weeks of the conflict.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited the wounded soldiers who were being treated in a military hospital, according to a video released by the Ukrainian Presidential Press Service, in March as well.
Some of the soldiers in the video were allegedly wounded in Hostomel and Irpin, the two cities where fierce fighting took place against Russian troops.
Zelenski handed out prizes and offered words of encouragement to the patients, saying, “Get well! I wish you strength. Good for you! We do it for the country and carry this burden on your shoulders “.
On Sunday, Russian missiles struck a large Ukrainian base near the border with Poland, a NATO member, killing 35 people and injuring 134, a local official said.
Ukraine also reported new airstrikes on a western airport, heavy bombing of Chernivtsi northeast of the capital, and attacks on the southern city of Mykolayiv, where officials said nine people had been killed.
