Captured Russian soldiers have warned President Vladimir Putin ‘we’ll rise against you’ after they were made to carry out ‘terror attacks’ in Ukraine.
Moscow’s troops labelled the bombing of a maternity hospital in Mariupol on March 9 an act of ‘perverse neo-Nazism.
Three air force pilots, speaking to CNN, warned the Russian strongman ‘you will not hide this for long’ because ‘many’ troops share the same feelings and ‘sooner or later, we will come home.
They laid the blame at the feet of Russian commanders for ‘horrifying’ crimes against ‘peaceful Ukrainian civilians and warned ‘you cannot forgive such things.
I’m not sure what may justify a child’s tears, or, even worse, the killing of innocent people, toddlers, said Russian jet pilot Maxim.
It’s not just about demilitarizing Ukraine or defeating the Ukrainian Armed Forces; cities of peaceful inhabitants are now being destroyed.
Observers are concerned that the claims resemble those made by many Russian soldiers following their detention by Ukrainian forces, and that the personnel are being coerced to betray Moscow.
However, CNN said that the three pilots did not appear to be under duress, that they were not handcuffed, and that Ukrainian officials made no attempt to steer the conversation.
It comes after Russia bombed a maternity hospital in Mariupol on March 9, killing four people, including a pregnant lady whose baby died days later.
