Translated from Russian by J.Hawk
The women of Velikonovoselo are already openly telling
Ukrainian soldiers to leave and not bring war to their homes.
What’s interesting to me is that the women are no longer
afraid or anything. It’s clear that the mobilization was the proverbial last
P.S. I haven’t seen the much-praised support for the
Ukrainian military on the Donbass. Rather the opposite. PEOPLE ARE NO LONGER
AFRAID EVEN IN THE REAR AREAS. Half a year ago ten Right-Sectorites with
assault rifles would have quickly restored “order”. Now something is stopping
them. Clearly they are afraid.
Translator’s Note: The video shows a group of local women assembled at the local military commissariat and demanding to know where their mobilized sons and husbands are. The officers are replying that they are not in the zone of fighting but rather at the permanent bases of units to which they were assigned. This does not seem to placate the women, who only get more boisterous. But it’s when the officer says that the Ukrainian troops will leave when Russian troops arrive (!) that the crowd explodes. They don’t seem terrified at the prospect, rather the opposite, as Yurasumy notes.
