'This Is The Highest Price': Ukraine's Zelensky Visits Troops On Frontline

The president thanked the troops for their sacrifices.

Kyiv:

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky has visited troops near the Kupiansk sector of the frontline in the country's northeast, he announced on social media on Thursday.

Zelensky posted a video of him visiting a command post in the area alongside one of Ukraine's top generals. The president thanked the troops for their sacrifices.

"I know you lose comrades and those close to you every day. Everyone understands that this is the highest price," he told the assembled soldiers.

Ukrainian troops have been weathering Russian assaults on the Kupiansk front over the last several months, as Moscow seeks to push back in a sector where it was routed in a lightning counteroffensive more than a year ago.

Moscow has made some small, incremental gains in the area since September, but the front lines have not moved significantly.
