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.

Russian forces have been blockading Ukraine’s key export routes out of Mykolaiv and Odesa since February, leaving at least 23 million tons of grain and oilseeds stranded.

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.
