Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made his first trip to the Kharkiv region since Ukrainian forces reclaimed thousands of square miles of territory there over the weekend as he attempted to use his country’s battlefield gains to seek further aid from the West.
Mr. Zelensky’s trip to the city of Izyum on Wednesday showed the extraordinary success of the Ukrainian campaign. From the beginning of the invasion, the city served as a hub for Russian troops and weapons in the Northeast. The visit took place on the same day that the European Union announced a major aid package for Ukraine.
