Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on his compatriots in a New Year's message shortly before midnight that 2024 would be the year in which Ukraine takes revenge on Russian forces that invaded the country. Zelensky said he would “destroy” Russian forces.

“Next year the enemy will suffer destruction,” Zelensky said, stressing that Ukraine will have one million drones by 2024, in addition to F-16 fighter jets provided by its Western partners. Our pilots have already mastered the F-16 and we are sure to see them soon in our airspace. The President of Ukraine said: “Our enemies will see how angry we will be.”

Zelensky also urged his Western allies to shore up their support as conflict fatigue grows. Despite billions in support from the West, Ukraine has failed to make significant progress in its counteroffensive against the Russians.
