If our people are in danger, we will answer with full force
Putin, signing the decree on the mobilization of the military, said that if the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, we will use all available resources to protect our people. He said that our aim was to liberate the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine. The people of Eastern Ukraine did not want to live under Kyiv’s rule. We did not want the Russian speaking people to become a gamble for Ukraine.
Decision to deploy more soldiers in the war
Putin’s increased deployment of troops simply means the Russo-Ukraine war will continue for some more time. Putin said he would deploy more troops to aid Russia in its war against Ukraine. He said that in the first instance, trained and experienced soldiers would be sent to the front. Putin also said that Russia would do everything to protect the Russian-speaking people of eastern Ukraine. He also announced to provide all possible help to these people. Russia is already giving money to people coming from Ukraine.
Putin preparing for referendum in eastern Ukraine
Russian President Vladimir Putin has also announced a referendum in the Ukrainian occupied territory. In such a situation, people living in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia will vote on joining Russia in the coming days. The number of Russian speaking people in this area is very high. Russia’s occupation of these areas means the economic destruction of Ukraine. Two industrial cities in Ukraine, Europe’s largest nuclear plant and thousands of kilometers of land have come under Russian-held territory.
