The New York Times revealed this Wednesday alleged conversations that would have been intercepted to Russian soldiers who were in Ukraine.
“They gave us orders to kill everyone we see” and “Putin is crazy. He wants to take kyiv, but we can’t do it” are several of the words that are heard from the uniformed men to their relatives that would show a feeling of pessimism and frustration due to the conflict.
The military would also have said that they were losing the war as well as the abandonment of the army at the end of the conflict.
So far, the Kremlin has not commented on the veracity of these leaked conversations, although they indicated that the military campaign will continue in Ukraine.
“As you know, not the entire territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic has been liberated. We are talking about the territory on its borders in 2014. That is why, at a minimum, the entire Donetsk People’s Republic must be liberated, ”said the spokesman for the Russian Presidency, Dmitri Peskov, at his daily press conference.
This Wednesday the separatist leaders of Donetsk and Lugansk traveled to Moscow to ask President Vladimir Putin to join Russia. (YO)
