Several cities, as well as airbases in Ukraine, have been bombed, shelled or hit with ballistic missiles since Russia has called its 11-day-old full-scale military operation.

But Vinnytsia is in the western region of central Ukraine, which is far from the Russia as well as Belarus borders, in an area that has seen fewer such strikes.

Zelenskyy took the chance to renew his demand that Western powers enforce a no-fly zone over Ukraine to prevent more Russian attacks.

He said, “We repeat every day to close the sky upon Ukraine. Close for all the Russian missiles, for Russian combat aircraft, and for all their terrorists.”

President Zelenskyy further added, “If you don’t, if you don’t give us at least planes so we can protect ourselves, there is only one thing to conclude; you want us to be killed very slowly.”
