Zelenskyy informed that one of the ways money is being gathered is through the government fund-raising platform UNITED24, which in its first month brought in more than $50 million. He says Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina on Tuesday joined former Ukrainian soccer player Andriy Shevchenko in becoming an ambassador for the fundraising platform.
Meanwhile, President Zelenskyy also said that Russian forces have made no significant advances in the eastern Donbas region over the past day. In his nightly video address, Zelenskyy said late Tuesday that the heroic defense of the Donbas continues.
Zelenskyy also said that Russia clearly did not expect to meet so much resistance and are now trying to bring in additional troops and equipment. He says the same is true in the southern Kherson region, which Russian troops occupied early in the war.
He also said that Ukraine plans to release a special Book of Executioners next week with confirmed information about war crimes committed by the Russian army. He says those named will include not only those who carried out war crimes but their commanders.
