It has been one year since Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, marking the beginning of the hybrid war. On February 24th, 2021, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is holding a press conference in honor of this tragic anniversary.
The event, aptly named "February. Year One of Invincibility", is meant to remind the world of the struggle that Ukraine is facing, and of the courage and resolve of the Ukrainian people in the face of Russian aggression.
Accreditation of media representatives is open until 14:00 on 23 February, with each media able to accredit one correspondent, one cameraman, and one photographer. This is a historic moment for Ukraine, and the event aims to keep the story of the people alive in a way that no amount of media coverage can.
The Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine anticipates possible Russian provocations or missile attacks on 23-24 February, and soldiers are on high alert. Over the past year, Ukraine has suffered a great deal of destruction and loss, but it has also shown immense strength throughout the hybrid war.
The Ukrainian people have not given up the fight for their freedom and independence, and this press conference is a testament to their resilience.
The world must not forget the thousands of lives lost due to the Russian invasion, and the hundreds of thousands still living with its consequences. The Ukrainian people demand justice, and will continue to fight in the face of adversity until justice is served. The press conference on February 24th is a chance to remember the fallen and to honor their memory.
We must join the Ukrainian people in celebrating their strength and courage and acknowledging their immense challenges. We must also stand in solidarity with them in their fight for freedom, independence, and justice. February 24th is a day of mourning, but also a day of strength and hope.
