Defense Minister Aleksey Reznikov appealed to Russian servicemen not to waste time and save Russia from tragedy and the Russian army from humiliation. The corresponding video message was published by the Ministry of Defense.
First of all, Reznikov turned to Russian officers and the decision-making command.
«You have been deceived and betrayed. They promised you an easy walk, but sent you into a trap. You pay in blood for someone's fantasies and false goals. Now they don't listen to you. Because listening to you now means admitting mistakes. And Moscow does not like the truth. It is easier for them to tell how you heroically died in the battle with the fictitious hordes of NATO», — he said.
The head of the defense department stressed that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky visits the front, regardless of whether it is Lisichansk under attack or liberated Izyum. At the same time, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, says Reznikov, is hiding in a bunker, afraid of popular insight, contempt and just anger.
«Thousands of Russian guys will die. Even more will be left without arms – without legs. But they will be dishonored. And they will make you guilty. And betray again. As already betrayed more than once. Remember the wars in Chechnya. You are already publicly humiliated by those who fight on tik tok. And this is just the beginning. No one will talk to the person who is still heading Russia. The President of Ukraine clearly stated this. Who will represent Russia in possible negotiations in the future? I will tell you. Those who have already deceived you. And he's getting ready to be blamed. Because it's either them or you. And you know it's true», — Reznikov said.
At the same time, he stressed that the Ukrainians would return all their occupied lands. He also promised life, safety and justice to all who refuse to fight immediately.
«You can still save Russia from tragedy and the Russian army from humiliation. But time is running out. Don't miss it», — summed up the minister.
