“55 thousand Russian soldiers died in this war in six months. Tens of thousands were wounded, maimed. Do you want more? No? To Russia Zelensky.
As assessed by the president of Ukraine, the Russian decision to mobilize is “an open admission that their cadre army, which had been prepared for decades to plunder someone else, did not stand up and fell apart”.
“And now, through mobilization, Russia’s war against Ukraine for most Russian citizens is no longer something on TV or on the Internet, but something that has come to every Russian home,” continued the head of state.
According to Zelensky, the Russian authorities, reacting to the fact of Ukrainian power, are changing tactics and trying to involve even more Russian citizens and resources in the war. He added that the Russian authorities plan to mobilize one million people.
The president also referred to the “referenda” prepared in the territories occupied by Russia, which he described as a “farce”. He thanked international partners for condemning “another Russian lie”, including the president of the USA and “all American friends”, the president of France, the chancellor of Germany, the “Polish brothers”, the Baltic states, the head of the European Commission, the OSCE.
