"We understand that terrorists are preparing new strikes and as long as they have missiles, they won’t stop," Zelensky said in a video address late on Sunday, as cited by the ukrinform.net website.
"But our ability to help each other and take care of the most vulnerable - the elderly, families with children, those who lost homes and relatives in the war - our mutual assistance is one of the elements of protection against terror and our strength," he added.
Zelensky also said that the coming week "can be as hard" as the previous one.
He added: "Our Defense Forces are preparing. The whole state is preparing. We work out all scenarios, including with partners. And our unity must be ready. So please do not leave without help those whom you can help. Please pay attention to the air alerts during the week.
"Together and helping each other we will pass this challenge of war as well: this winter, this Russia's attempt to use the cold against people. We are doing and will do everything possible to strengthen our defense. We are doing and will do everything to hold Russia accountable for this terrorist war. Together we’ll endure everything."
Zelensky told the nation that "to endure now and defend ourselves now is to endure and defend ourselves for generations to come for all Ukrainians throughout our beautiful land."
