Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksii Reznikov has called on the residents of the occupied Donbas, forcibly mobilized by the Russian occupiers, to surrender to the Ukrainian army in order to save their lives.
In an address to the residents of Donetsk, Luhansk, Makiivka, Horlovka, Yenakiieve, Alchevsk, Krasnyi Luch, Krasnodon and other cities of our Donbas, Oleksii Reznikov recalled that "the Kremlin unleashed a full-scale war, hiding behind the words that you need to be protected".
"You know better than me what this "protection" actually turned out to be. Not only for Ukraine in general, but for you as well. For your relatives and neighbors. You know better than me that hundreds of people have already been killed in your cities over the three weeks of escalation. Ordinary people who were taken from factories and mines, handed a machine gun and thrown under bullets, In recent days, the Ukrainian army is increasingly taking captive people whom the Russian occupiers forcibly mobilized and thrown into battle like cannon fodder. We know and you know that the scale of violent mobilization is increasing", - Oleksii Reznikov states.
He emphasizes that "those mobilized from the "DNR" and "LNR" are not included in the statistics of the losses of the Russian army, because for Moscow, you are only expendable material.
"Soon the number of killed residents of CADLO will go to a thousand", - Oleksii Reznikov points out.
"Defenders" from Russia are now destroying Mariupol. Literally. The whole city. The Russians have already wiped out Volnovakha and a number of other cities. There is great destruction in the Luhansk oblast. Moscow hordes "liberate" the region from schools, hospitals, roads and enterprises. They "liberate" the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts from the Donetsk and Luhansk residents. They will be quite satisfied if instead of the blooming Ukrainian Donbas, there remains an inanimate desert. Will that suit you?" - Oleksii Reznikov asks.
"You certainly see that the plans of the Russians are falling apart. Ukrainian soldiers have already destroyed more than 15 thousand Russian soldiers. Russia will lose this war and fall into chaos. It will definitely not think of you", - Oleksii Reznikov emphasizes.
