According to Vyacheslav Volodin, the Russian army was sent to fight in Ukraine “for the Russians and the security of the country”. He regarded the talk about the futility of war as a betrayal of the soldiers and officers.
Vyacheslav Volodin, Chairman of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, said that the country’s authorities do not plan to declare mobilization. It is reported by TASS.
When the speaker journalist was asked whether they would declare mobilization in the Russian Federation, he replied, “No, no, no. I will say it both on the air and on the air.”
At the same time, Volodin emphasized that the Russian army is fighting in Ukraine “for the security of the Russians and our country.”
“We understand that it is impossible to achieve this without it. We understand. Any talk about the futility of (the war in Ukraine) or questioning is a betrayal of our soldiers and officers,” he said.
According to him, those who leave Russia must understand that they will have to “give up their homeland” abroad. The spokesperson of the State Duma is now convinced that it is extremely important to stay in Russia, support loved ones and unite.
“And by the way, this is better understood by people living in our Russian regions. The standard of living there is lower, but there is more conscience,” said the official.
The war in Ukraine is an excuse to impose Western sanctions
Volodin said that the war launched by the Russian Federation in Ukraine “has become an excuse for the West to impose sanctions on Russia.”
“The countries that are hostile to us are doing everything to slow down development. Now Russia has a chance to “create its own nationally oriented economy,” he said.
Volodin admitted that he does not see Russia as an outcast because it has “many friends and partners in the world.”
Note that rumors about the upcoming mobilization in Russia have been circulating for more than 2 months. According to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, they are preparing to declare partial mobilization in the Bryansk, Belgorod and Kursk regions on the border with Ukraine.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on May 4 that Russian President Vladimir Putin does not plan to formally declare war and mobilization against Ukraine.
CNN journalists reported on May 3 that Putin could declare war on Ukraine on May 9 and fully mobilize reserves to seize the eastern and southern regions.
