Volodymyr Zelensky traveled to the Donbass, near the front line, to greet Ukrainian soldiers, while Vladimir Putin



Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited Sloviansk on Tuesday 6 December.

The city is located a few kilometers from Bakhmout, nicknamed "the slaughterhouse of the east" because of the numerous Russian attacks that have lasted for more than six months.

The Head of State greeted the soldiers there, on this Day of the country's armed forces.

“The war zone has expanded, the struggle is tougher, the price is higher.

But what remains intact is your courage, your endurance, your will, and therefore our freedom.

Your indomitability, and therefore our independence,” Zelensky praised in a video released by the Ukrainian presidency on social media.

Since the start of the conflict between him and Russia, the Ukrainian president has been to the front line on several occasions.

Unlike Vladimir Putin, who prefers videoconferences in his office or residence.

The head of the Kremlin however moved on the Crimean bridge this Monday, December 5.

In a video made public by the Russian government, he can be seen driving a car, crossing part of the infrastructure and then talking to workers about the progress of the work.

The bridge was partially destroyed last October in a truck bomb attack that Russia attributes to Ukraine.

The work had started quickly, and allowed a gradual resumption of traffic.

The Russian authorities are aiming for total repair before the summer of 2023 of this bridge, which is crucial for supplying the Russian troops engaged in Ukraine.
