Zelenskyy visits war-damaged south Ukraine

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Saturday visited Mykolaiv, a city in southern Ukraine that has been ravaged by the war.

The visit to Mykolaiv is Zelenskyy’s first to the city since the Russian invasion.

In a video address from the city, Zelenskyy hailed Brussels’ support for Ukraine becoming an EU member as a “historical achievement.”

The European Commission, as well as France, Italy and Germany, this week recommended granting Ukraine EU candidate status. The final decision rests with the European Council.
