Quote: “I am grateful to all those who are fighting and working to ensure that Ukraine maintains access to the global market. The results are good: Russia is gradually losing control over the Black Sea and retreating to the eastern part of the water area. We will get them even there.”


Details: The president also thanked the US for the new powerful sanctions decision. Thanks to it, more than 220 Russian – and not only Russian – entities working for aggression are now under US sanctions.


  • On 1 November, The Economist magazine published a column by Valerii Zaluzhnyi, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
  • In particular, he stated that he believes that the war with Russia is moving to a new stage: “positional” warfare with static and exhausting battles. To win it, Ukraine needs high technologies.
  • He also wrote that the situation at the front has reached a stalemate when neither side can advance because they are technologically equipped at the same level. The general says the situation reminds him of the First World War.
