Russian troops have suffered defeats in Ukraine that Russia has not seen in decades, and many Russians affected by the propaganda do not yet realize how great their losses are. The statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his speech on the occasion of the Day of Remembrance of the victims of the genocide of the Crimean Tatar people, reports the Ukrainian news agency Ukrinform.
“Occupation troops have already suffered such defeats that Russia has seen for decades in various wars. Poisoned by state propaganda, many Russians simply do not realize this. They do not want to see how great their losses are in various ways. “People, economy, culture, future. But life will make them feel these losses.”
Zelensky added that in 1944 the Crimean Tatars were expelled from their land, and “the tyrants of the people at that time were convinced that none of the displaced would return to their home in Crimea.”
“Today, trying to occupy Ukraine and destroy our lives, the current tyrants of the people were also convinced that they would achieve everything and that we would not be able to bear it anyway. But we have endured and we are struggling to return to every corner of our homes. “And we are coming back,” he said.
