Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, issued a rallying cry, vowing that his country will prevail as it marks two years since Russia’s full-scale invasion. In an address in the capital Kyiv, Zelensky declared, “None of us will allow our Ukraine to end.”

Western leaders joined him in a show of solidarity. The anniversary coincides with Ukraine experiencing a range of setbacks in its efforts to expel Russia from its territory. In his speech on Saturday, Mr. Zelensky emphasized that while any normal person would desire the war to end, it could only happen on Ukraine’s terms.

“That’s why, to the words ‘end of the war,’ we always attach ‘on our terms.’ That’s why the word ‘peace’ is always coupled with ‘fair.'”

“We are fighting for it. For 730 days of our lives already. And we will win on the best day of our life.”

The leaders of Italy, Belgium, and Canada, along with the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, joined him in Kyiv. They laid wreaths on a wall commemorating those who lost their lives in the war. However, there were some glaring omissions among the visitors. No senior US representatives were present, whereas President Joe Biden attended the anniversary last year.

On Friday, Mr. Zelensky met a group of Democratic senators led by Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, which he said indicated Washington’s support for Ukraine. Ms. von der Leyen praised the Ukrainian troops who defended the country in the early days of the invasion and confounded expectations about their ability to withstand Russia’s invasion force.

“You managed to stop Russia’s attack on the heart of Ukraine. You saved your country, you saved all of Europe,” she said.

During the anniversary visit, Italy and Canada announced that they had signed bilateral security pacts with Kyiv, aimed at boosting Ukraine’s hopes of joining the NATO military alliance.

Later, members of the G7 – including Canada, Italy, the UK, and the US – pledged support for Ukraine and agreed on imposing new sanctions on Russia during a virtual meeting. Across Europe, marches in solidarity with Ukraine have taken place. Participants demanded that Russian President Vladimir Putin end the war.
