No statements of the military and political leadership of the aggressor country will affect our willingness to fight for our freedom, Valeriy Zaluzhnyi, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, said in a statement.
“The Armed Forces of Ukraine have been repelling the armed aggression of the russian Federation against our country for 8 years and 7 months. The full-scale offensive of the enemy did not frighten us. Moreover, we united and met the enemy with dignity. The announcement of mobilization in russia is a confirmation of that. Hundreds of thousands of men and women protect their native land, their homes, their children, and the future of Ukraine,” Zaluzhnyi said.
We will destroy everyone who comes to our land with weapons – whether voluntarily or by mobilization, he added.
“Hold the line! Victory will be ours!” Zaluzhnyi said.
