Zelensky visits Ukraine's east for first time since invasion

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky visits the country's war-ridden east for the first time since the Russian invasion. He meets with troops on a trip to Kharkiv, wearing a bullet-proof vest and being shown heavily destroyed buildings in the city and its surroundings. Moscow has retreated from the Kharkiv region in recent weeks.
