On Wednesday, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin declared a partial military mobilization. This decision made by him has put the economy of the country at risk. In addition to this, the people of Russia are also worried as the war with Ukraine continues.
In a statement recorded by a media house, Vladimir Putin said that Russia will do anything it takes to destroy our country. In addition to this, the President also blamed a number of Western nations for the war between Ukraine and Russia.
Vladimir also said that the mobilization events in Russia will take place from Wednesday itself. Nevertheless, not much information about the same was provided by him. However, he did say that there will be a rise in the funds that Russia required when it comes to weapon production.
Even though partial mobilization is a hazy idea it could also mean that people residing in Russia will have to contribute when it comes to the war effort. In addition to this, businesses also have to do the same. Even though Russia has still not declared war on Ukraine, it confirms that it is a special military operation.
Apart from everything else, Putin also said that the Western nations have been nuclear blackmailing them. In addition to this, he also said that these nations claimed to have sufficient weapons that can be used in the war. Putin said that none of this news was fake.
Vladimir Putin has also said that Russia already has the weapons it needs for the war with Ukraine. However, they are not sure if Moscow will give them the weapons or not. If Moscow ends up helping Russia, a third world war can also arise between Moscow and Ukraine. Therefore, the British Foreign Office Minister Gillian Keegan told the media houses that none of the comments made by Putin should be taken for granted.
“Clearly it’s something that we should take very seriously because, you know, we’re not in control — I’m not sure he’s in control either, really. This is obviously an escalation,” she said.
Now, it will be worth seeing if Russia and Ukraine will finally have a war or if things will soon be under control. The war between Russia and Ukraine has been ongoing since the year 2017. It was again on February 24, 2022, when Russia invaded Ukraine in a huge escalation of the Russo-Ukrainian War that first occurred in 2014. This specific invasion gave rise to the largest refugee crisis in Europe.
