Zelensky visits Zolote, volunteers remove their weapons
The president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, visited Zolote to personally check the situation. He spoke with the citizens and as well as the patriots, who oppose the idea of the army’s pullback in the area. Their dialogue didn’t bring any constructive outcome but the patriots were later forced to disarm. They remain in Zolote unarmed. It’s important to note that patriots had all weapons legally registred but an armed person in the area of combat is considered illegal.
