"Preserving a complete ceasefire is a guarantee of continuing difficult yet much-needed negotiations in the Minsk and Normandy formats. I would like to emphasize once again that our army is able to repel anyone. And this strengthens our position to resolve the situation through the diplomatic path chosen by Ukraine for the reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories and the return of our people," Zelensky stressed.

According to him, on this path, Ukraine has the full and unwavering support of international partners, including Europe and the United States. And a proof of that is the conversation he had with President of the United States Joe Biden on April 2.
