Zelensky shares defiant video after 100 days of war in Ukraine

“The leader of [our parliamentary] faction is here, the head of the president’s office is here, Ukraine’s Prime Minister Shmyhal is here, [presidential adviser] Podolyak is here, the president is here,” he says, with his team standing behind him in the same position as in the Feb. 25 video. “Ukraine’s armed forces are here. The most important thing is our people; the people of our state are here.”

“We have been defending Ukraine for 100 days already,” he says. “Victory will be ours.”

Although the new video mirrors the old one, notable differences show how the war has progressed. The first was recorded in the twilight hours on the deserted Kyiv streets, with the president and his staff bathed in the soft yellow glow of street lamps, and wearing the military-style outfits that befitted a wartime leader.

In the new video, Zelensky and his top officials are dressed more casually, on a bright, early summer day. The Ukrainian president looks less tired than he did on Feb. 24, though perhaps older than the gap of 98 days would allow.
