The President of Ukraine noted that more and more Russians are realizing that they must die simply because one person does not want to end the war.
President Volodymyr Zelenskyi again addressed the Russian occupiers, stating that they had already lost and nothing would help them in the war against Ukraine.
That’s what he’s about stated in a video message at the end of the 224th day of the war.
According to the head of the Ukrainian state, the war and mobilization carried out by the Putin regime is aimed at destroying all prospects of the Russian people.
“Even if you find some other weapon somewhere in the world with the same “natural” name for your “Russian world” as these Iranian “Shahids” with which you are trying to bomb our cities, such as Bila Tserkva, for example. . It won’t help you anyway. You’ve already lost. You’ve lost because even now, on the 224th day of a full-scale war, you have to explain to your society why all this is necessary: this war, the false mobilization and the self-destruction of all prospects of your people,” he said.
“When people feel their rightness and are on their own land, they know everything themselves. They do not need intrusive lectures on “alternative history” and political information sessions every day – sometimes at meetings with teachers, sometimes at a meeting about the progress of seasonal field work.” , – said the head of state.
He emphasized that Ukrainians know what they are fighting for, and more and more Russian citizens realize that they must die simply because one person does not want to stop the war.
“Obviously, who will win,” Zelensky said.
White Church – what is known about the attack by Iranian kamikaze drones
On the night of October 5, the Russian invaders attacked the White Church of the Kyiv region with kamikaze drones. Six hits were recorded. One person was injured and the city’s infrastructure was damaged.
All Russian military released 12 kamikaze dronesof which the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed 6.
Yuriy Ignat, the spokesman of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, noted that kamikaze drones pose a serious threattherefore any force and means will be used against them in order to protect citizens, the Armed Forces and other self-defense forces.
According to the joint coordination headquarters of the press center of the Defense Forces of Southern Ukraine, air defense units destroy kamikaze drones of Iranian production twice as often as they hit the target.
Iran’s sale of kamikaze drones to Russia
In mid-August, it became known that Iran sold a thousand of its drones to Russia.
On September 23, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine by order of the President deprived the ambassador of Iran of accreditationand also ordered to significantly reduce the number of diplomatic personnel of the Iranian embassy in Kyiv in response to the sale of attack drones to Russia.
Officially Iran denied provision of drones of the Russian Federation. Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollohiyan, in a telephone conversation with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, stated that Iran is “against the war in Ukraine” and “does not support steps that will lead to the continuation and escalation of hostilities.” Subsequently, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani also called the news about the supply of drones to Russia for use in the war in Ukraine are baseless.
The Russians label the devices “Geranium-2”, but they are have the insides of Iranian drones, suggesting that it is either a repainted Iranian drone or a Russian drone assembled from Iranian parts. The sound that is heard during the flight of these drones resembles the sounds of mopeds or chainsaws, which is why Ukrainians call them “mopeds”, and because of their triangular shape – “balalaikas”.
