Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited the front lines of the brutal Russian invasion in the hard-hit eastern region of the country Sunday — giving his troops a morale boost more than three months into the war.

In Lysychansk and Soledar, Zelensky “visited the frontline positions of the Ukrainian military,” where he learned about “the operational situation on the frontline of defense,” a statement from his office read, CNN reported.

“I want to thank you for your great work, for your service, for protecting all of us, our state,” Zelensky told soldiers. “I am grateful to everyone. I want to wish you and your families’ good health. Take care of yourselves.”

Zelensky’s representatives said later Sunday the president also toured a medical facility in the region and spoke with people displaced from places like Mariupol, which is now under Kremlin control after a weeks-long siege.
