In his evening address on 10 May, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy commented on Russia's attempts to assault the north of Kharkiv region and assured that he would add forces to defend Kharkiv region.

"The main thing is Kharkiv region. Today, Russian troops tried to expand their operations against Ukraine. We understand the size of the occupier's forces, we see their plan. Our soldiers, our artillery, our drones are responding to the occupier. I am grateful to each of our soldiers, each sergeant, each officer who defend our positions in the way they should," Zelenskyy said.

Zelenskyy assured that he was in constant contact with the Minister of Defence: "We provide everything necessary to protect our positions. It all depends on the resilience of our soldiers, and everyone who holds their positions now is holding the positions of the whole of Ukraine."

He also noted that it is important that partners support the soldiers with timely supplies: "Really timely. The package that really helps is the weapons brought to Ukraine, not just the announcement of the package. I thank every leader who perceives the situation in this way."

"I have just heard a report from Chief Commander Oleksandr Syrsky. Heavy fighting is taking place along the entire frontline. Special attention is being paid to the areas in Kharkiv, Pokrovske and other areas in Donetsk region. We discussed defensive actions and strengthening our positions in the Kharkiv region. Separately, we discussed Chasiv Yar. The Commander-in-Chief reported on decisions that will provide more opportunities for our soldiers," President Zelenskyy said.

The eight hundred and eighth day of the large-scale armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine continues. The Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to hold their positions and repel attacks by Russian units in several areas. The operational situation in eastern and southern Ukraine remains difficult. 

A total of 104 combat engagements took place on the frontline over the past day. In total, the Russian enemy launched 7 missiles and 108 air strikes, fired more than 120 times from multiple launch rocket systems at the positions of our troops and populated areas, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said in a statement.
