According to the Presidential Office, Zelenskyy inspected command posts and positions on the front in the city of Lysychansk on Sunday, which is separated from the currently hard-fought city of Sieverodonetsk by the Siverskyi Donets River.

"I'm grateful to everyone," he added. "Take care of yourself." Selenskyj was last on the front line at the end of May. The Russian head of state Vladimir Putin, on the other hand, has not yet visited his troops in the Ukraine war.

In addition, the reinforcement of the Russian positions on the island ensures that the sea route to Odessa remains blocked . This continues to make exports, including wheat, impossible.
