Russia, which has occupied the territory of Ukraine under the name of “special operation” since February, has not been able to achieve a clear success in the field for months. A new development took place in the war, after the news that the Ukrainian army had regained dominance in several regions in a row on the front.

Yesterday, 4 separatist regions in eastern Ukraine decided to have a referendum to join Russia. While the Russian side welcomed this development, the USA and the EU strongly opposed the voting.

“WEST IS TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY”

Russian leader Putin, on the other hand, is addressing the nation after the decision of a referendum to join the 4 separatist regions in Ukraine to Russia. Putin announced that he has declared a partial mobilization, as the world has been waiting for recently. “The West is trying to destroy our country. Our goal is to liberate Donbas. We will use all kinds of weapons to protect our territorial integrity. I say to the West, we have a large number of weapons to respond. This is not bluff.”

THE PENALTY FOR ESCAPE TO MOBILIZATION IN RUSSIA INCREASED

The bill to increase the prison sentence for those fleeing military mobilization in Russia was passed by the Duma, the lower house of the Russian parliament. According to the bill, which was amended by the draft law passed in the Duma, soldiers who voluntarily surrendered to the enemy army could be sentenced to 10 years in prison, and those who plundered in war could be sentenced to 15 years in prison. The prison sentence for evading military duty during mobilization was also increased from 5 years to 10 years.
