Many Russian soldiers thought they were having a drill rather than being in the actual war, so when some of the Russian tanks ran out fuel in Ukraine, they were trying to gas up, seen in the screenshot of a killed Russian soldier’s text to his mother, during an UN meeting. Ukraine’s ambassador to the United Nations, Sergiy Kyslytsya, has read aloud a text message exchange between a Russian solider in Ukraine and his mother before he was killed. “Mama, I’m in Ukraine. There is a real war raging here. I’m afraid,” one message read according to Kyslytsya Russia-Ukraine war latest news: ICC to open investigation into alleged war crimes, in the video published on Feb 28, 2022, “Ukraine’s UN ambassador reads text from Russian soldier to mother before he was killed“, below:
Apparently Putin did not tell his people that there is a real war going on and Russia is invading Ukraine, sending more than 30,000+ Russian soldiers to be slaughtered. These killed Russian soldiers surely have families and friends back home in Russia. Russian market is crashing so much that they had to close it on Monday, February 28, 2022. This Russian invasion is also training/weaning other countries off of Russian oil, speeding up transition toward renewable energy, therefore Putin has permanently killed off Russia’s own market and source of revenue. It’s going to get worse in Russia both economically and politically for Putin as well as for the Russian people. So it is no wonder that there are so many Russians protesting against this war in more than 50+ cities in Russia, and thousands of Russians are put in jail for protesting. These days, Putin is at arm’s length from his own officers, hiding in a bunker with no windows, reminiscent of Adolf Hitler toward the end of WWII when Secret Nazi attempted to turn the tide of war as Berlin crumbled. Joseph Goebbel’s diaries provide a fresh understanding of life inside Hitler’s bunker in the final days of the Reich, in the video published on Dec 20, 2020, “The Last Days Of Adolf Hitler | Secrets Of War | Timeline“, below:
