Russia-Ukraine war: Zelenskiy vows to retake territory lost to Russia

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has vowed to retake all territory lost to Russia since 2014, including the Crimean peninsula, in a defiant speech marking the country's Independence Day.

In a televised address, Zelenskiy said that Ukraine would "never give up" on its fight for freedom and independence, and that Russia would be held accountable for its war crimes.

"We will not rest until we retake all our territory," Zelenskiy said. "Crimea is ours. Donbas is ours. And all of our land will be Ukrainian again."

Zelenskiy's speech comes as Ukraine marks 31 years of independence from the Soviet Union. The country is currently in the midst of a war with Russia, which began in February when Russia invaded the country.

The war has caused a humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, with millions of people displaced from their homes and thousands killed. The United Nations has warned that the war could have a devastating impact on global food security.

Zelenskiy's speech is likely to be seen as a challenge to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has vowed to continue the war until Ukraine surrenders.

The war in Ukraine is a major geopolitical crisis with far-reaching implications. The outcome of the war will have a significant impact on the future of Europe and the global order.
