"The situation is very difficult, but under control," the country’s top officer said.

"A fierce struggle continues on our soil, the scale of which the world has not seen since World War II. We have no right to hand over this war to our children."

The commander-in-chief said that "the enemy must be destroyed here and now, otherwise, it will not stop."

"And we can do that. Our people are ready to protect their own nation and own children at the expense of their own lives, but we need more weapons and ammunition," he said.
