War against Ukraine will push Russia back decades: Zelensky
Ukrainian President Zelensky has predicted that the war against Ukraine will push Russia back decades – similar to the tragedy of the 1990s. “I believe that by attacking us, they will destroy what Russian society has achieved in the last 25 years, and they will return to where they once started – in the 90’s,” Zelensky said. The situation of the decade will be like the ‘tragedy of the decade’. .
“To work for the development of our state without just freedom, without the constructive will of millions,” he said in a video address. This will be the price for Russia in the war against Ukraine. It will be a fall for them, a painful fall. And they will feel – despite the publicity of the television preachers. ‘ Earlier, Ukraine’s armed forces said that Russian troops had used their entire stockpile of missiles and some types of ammunition. According to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, many companies operating in the Russian arms industry have been converted to round-the-clock mode.
