Former U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel praises the'fierce' resistance and competency of Ukrainian leaders and civilians. For over 80 days, Ukraine has successfully defended itself against a much larger Russian army, and now Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is convinced victory could soon be near, he said. Russia has become "bankrupt" and is now facing "a dead end" in the war, Zelenskyy said during a nightly address Sunday. During his speech, Zelenskyy said his country is starting to see a potential avenue to victory but that they would not let up in their struggle with Russia militarily or in seeking international support to cripple Russian economically. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy speaks from Kyiv, Ukraine, on Tuesday.
