Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on Saturday (12.03.2022) the mothers of Russian soldiers to prevent the sending of their children to the “war” in Ukraine.

“I want to say once again to Russian mothers. Particularly to the mothers of the recruits. Don’t send your children to war in a foreign country,” Zelensky said in a new video on Telegram.

“Check where your son is. And if you have the slightest suspicion that your son may have been sent to war against Ukraine, act immediately” to prevent him from dying or being captured, he said.

“Ukraine has never wanted this terrible war. And Ukraine doesn’t want it. But it will defend itself as much as necessary,” he added.

Calls to the ranks

On Wednesday, Russia acknowledged for the first time the presence of call-ups in Ukraine and announced that some were taken, prisoner. Until now, Moscow argued that it had only sent professional soldiers.

This announcement came as requests for help on social networks from mothers without news of their children sent to the front increase.

In the conflict between Moscow and Chechen separatists in the 1990s and 2000s, numerous young Russian recruits were sent to fight and some were captured.

Their mothers mobilized for them to return alive or to retrieve their bodies, a movement that fueled anti-war protests in Russia.
