Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky uses a “Day of Unity” address to declare that Ukraine is fearless in the face of a potential Russian invasion, vowing his country would fight back.

“We are not afraid of forecasts, we are not afraid of anyone, of any enemies,” Zelensky says at a military-style event in the eastern port city of Mariupol, adding: “We will defend ourselves.”

Earlier today, Zelensky watched as the Ukraine military staged drills and trained with some of their new Western-supplied anti-tank weapons on a range near Rivne, west of the capital.
