“Together with the President of the European Council Donald Tusk, Volodymyr Zelensky passed the last point of the Ukrainian army and reached the destroyed bridge, on which people use to cross the demarcation line and which is planned to be restored in case truce-making is observed,” the report said.

“We want to restore this bridge. I publicly negotiated with our government: we will find funds  and rebuild it very quickly. To do so we need to push back the fortified points from the other side, and then we will start building a bridge, and we will complete it quickly,” Zelensky assured.

The President of Ukraine stressed that people would be able to cross the demarcation line during the construction of the bridge.

Zelensky and Tusk also visited the command and observation post of the 8th company of the 25th separate airborne brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, where they heard a report on security in the Joint Forces Operation area.
