Zelensky complained of the lack of fighting spirit among the Ukrainians “resting” in the back
MOSCOW, February 3 – RIA Novosti. Volodymyr Zelenskyy complained of the lack of fighting spirit and motivation among Ukrainians “resting” in cities not close to the front line.
“Our resilience depends on weapons and motivation. Motivation is provided not only by the partners, but also by the spirit within the state. At the very beginning of the war, the spirit was stronger. We were all at war. At the press conference after the EU-Ukraine summit in Kiev, Zelensky felt that there is no invasion, we are all at war. “Now I see that they are on vacation in some cities,” he said.
He urged Ukrainian and foreign journalists to unite as soon as possible and raise the morale of the Ukrainians “resting” in the back, reminding them of the ongoing hostilities.
A number of Ukrainian media previously reported that conscripts were rounded up in the country. It was reported that ambulances were used to reach the collection points mobilized by the army, and subpoenas were distributed by public services employees. The Ukrainian military has announced an increasing number of cases of the distribution of subpoenas in crowded places, amid the reluctance of citizens to communicate with the staff of the military registration and recruitment office at home. The media reported that Ukrainians avoided official employment for fear of receiving a summons at work.
Previously, the Verkhovna Rada, on the recommendation of President Volodymyr Zelensky, extended the martial law and general mobilization in Ukraine for 90 days until February 19 this year.
Russia launched a military operation against Ukraine on February 24. President Vladimir Putin described his goal as “protecting people who have been subjected to eight years of bullying and genocide by the Kyiv regime.” For this, according to him, it is planned to “disarm and demilitarize Ukraine” so that all war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against civilians” in Donbass are brought to justice.
