Zelenskyy accuses Russia of creating a humanitarian disaster by blocking vital supplies to the country's largest cities as Russian forces attack the outskirts Lviv.
According to the United Nations, 6.5 million people have been affected by war and more than 3,000,000 have fled Ukraine.
Chris Livesay reports that the Ukrainian president called Moscow overnight.
"Time to speak," Zelenskyy stated. It is time to restore territorial integrity, justice and justice for Ukraine. Russia's losses are so severe that it will take many generations to repair.
The Pentagon has estimated that more than 7,000 Russian troops were killed in Ukraine so far.
Putin, however, isn't trying to project a image of compromise and vowed at a packed rally that Russia would prevail.
Reporters were told by many attendees that they felt pressured to support him.
Putin reiterated his claim about Ukrainian civilians having welcomed Russia's troops.
The heartache is the truth. A son in Kyiv, Ukraine, wept over his mother's body after she was struck by falling debris. Mariupol, the site of Russia's most brutal onslaught, is under siege warfare. This has left hundreds of thousands without access to food, water, or electricity.
Russia claims it is now "tightening" the noose on the strategically important Black Sea city and has even deployed Islamist troops from its Chechnya area. The video, purportedly made by the pro-Putin Chechnya leader, shows them fighting with Ukrainian fighters on the upper floors.
In the east, Kharkiv, Ukrainian forces are holding strong despite the ferocious Russian bombardment. Russia tried and failed to conquer the city for more than three weeks.
The war for Ukraine is being waged offshore. According to Ukraine's defense minister, Russian troops have blocked access to the Azov Sea, which connects with the Black Sea. This raises fears that a wider war could be on the horizon.
