9/11 remembered, and a “day of special significance” this year for Ukraine, says president

President Marcelo, commemorating the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, remarked that the date, this year, has had “very special significance” for Ukraine, whose armed forces have made huge strides in their focus to beat back Russian invaders. “The outbreak of the war in Ukraine is more than a mere European event”, he stressed. “It is a global event” – and if yesterday’s gains are consolidated, the tide is turning in favour of Ukraine.
