From President Zelensky’s NYT op-ed: “Ukraine remains a good partner and friend of the United States. We received the military assistance we needed to continue to ensure our country’s independence.”

Words

English is a great language. I constantly create new words to improve it.

For instance,
cookied, stuffed with cookies or cookie dough;
distinctify, to make something more distinct;
dynamisation, the act of making something dynamic.

The words above aren’t in the dictionary. Yet. Therefore I submitted them to the Oxford English Dictionary for review. I’ll let you know if they approve them.
