Zelensky addressed the Russians and warned them of death if they go to war against Ukraine

The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, in his traditional evening address spoke about the mobilization in Russia. He advised mothers of Russian soldiers not to send them to war.

Volodymyr Zelensky addressed Russians who are subject to «partial» mobilization. He suggested that they not add to the lists of those killed.

The corresponding video appeared on his page in the social network.

Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the Russians in Russian. He drew attention to the fact that there were small protests in Russian cities the day before. And he noted that thanks to Ukrainian intelligence, he knows the real mood of people in the regions of Russia.

«We see that people in Dagestan, Buryatia, other national republics and regions of Russia understand that they were simply abandoned. Thrown to death. Why, for example, Dagestanis or anyone else should die in the Kharkiv region or near Donetsk? But because one person in Russia decided so for all citizens of Russia. There is no other reason. That’s what he wants. You are already complicit in all these crimes, murders and torture of Ukrainians. Because you were silent. Because you are silent», Volodymyr Zelensky emphasized.

Separately, he added that now is the time for the Russians to make a choice. For men from the Russian Federation, it is a choice: to die or to live, to become a cripple or to preserve health. For women in Russia, the choice is to lose husbands, sons, and grandchildren forever, or to try to protect them from death.

«Just think about the number of people they want to take away. We know for sure that summonses for 300,000 people were printed and signed in advance, even before this decision on mobilization appeared. Our intelligence proved it. But the Russian leadership is preparing to recruit up to a million men into the army – this is the main thing that they are keeping quiet about now,» the President of Ukraine emphasized.
