Zelensky Promised to Mobilize All Ukrainians in Case of War with Russia
OREANDA-NEWS. In the event of an attack by Russia on Ukraine from the Crimea, a big war will begin and Kiev will mobilize both men and women. This was stated by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in an interview with the magazine Focus published on December 25.
Being asked if a Russian attack from Crimea is possible, the politician noted that “this is a terrible situation,” and he “does not even want to imagine it.” “I am against it. Let’s hope this is impossible. Otherwise, there will be a big war. We will not go anywhere, we all will fight, everyone will be mobilized, both men and women. It will be bad for the Ukrainian population. And I think Russia understands this very well,” the President said.
Earlier, Refat Chubarov, head of the public institution Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People" (recognized as extremist in Russia), said that Russian troops could attack from the Crimea in order to redirect the water resources of the Dnieper for the needs of the peninsula.
