Russia’s war against Ukraine
As UNIAN reported, Russian troops invaded Ukraine in the early morning of February 24. Including, from the territory of Belarus, which Lukashenko kindly handed over to the Russian invaders. The Kremlin did not declare war on Ukraine, but called the full-scale aggression a “special operation” aimed, in particular, at the “denazification” and “demilitarization” of the Ukrainian state.
Russia’s actions were condemned by Western countries, which imposed sanctions against Moscow.
September 21, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin announced the beginning of partial mobilization in the country. According to the Russian leadership, citizens who have combat experience will primarily be involved in the war against Ukraine – up to 300 thousand people.
In a speech dedicated to the announcement of partial mobilization in the Russian Federation, Putin threatened the world the use of nuclear weapons: “There is nuclear blackmail against Russia… Everyone who tries to blackmail us in this way should know that the wind rose can turn in their direction as well.”
Putin’s statement is consistent with the analysis of many Western experts that Russia feels the need for human resources for the continuation of the war, and Putin himself does not abandon the original intention to occupy the entire territory of Ukraine. At the same time, the leader of the “Wagner” PVC engages in the recruitment of prisoners.
At the same time, in Moscow – against the background of the first successes of the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kharkiv region – announced the urgent holding of “referendums” in the occupied areas in the East and South of Ukraine. A number of Western countries have already declared that they do not recognize the results of their holding. The US separately noted that Russia “will pay for this”.
Also in Russia, on the eve of Putin’s speech, significantly increased the punishment for capture and desertion. In Kyiv, the beginning of mobilization in the Russian Federation was called Putin’s plan for the disposal of Russians. Zelensky emphasized that now is the time Ukraine keeps the initiative at the forefront.
