Kyiv/Moscow: President Volodymyr Zelensky had repeatedly claimed that the entire world and the people of Ukraine stand behind us in the war against Russia. However, along with the Western countries that once stood in support, the people of Ukraine have also started to abandon President Zelensky. Over 20 thousand Ukrainians have left Ukraine in the last one and a half years to avoid being a part of the war against Russia. Thus, analysts have claimed that Ukraine will face a big crisis in the future in the war against Russia.
The Russia-Ukraine conflict broke out in February last year. After this, western media, along with Ukraine, published false news of military conscription in Russia. There were reports and videos that Russian security agencies were capturing youths and recruiting them forcibly into the army. The Russian people are fed up with the conflict and there have been claims of an attempt to overthrow President Vladimir Putin. Videos of some Russian soldiers captured by Ukraine were also posted on social media.
On the other hand, it was being said that the people of Ukraine are joining the army with great enthusiasm. Artists, sportspersons, political leaders, and citizens from all walks of life were shown to be eager to join the military. Such posts were becoming very popular on social media. President Zelensky continuously mentioned in his programs that the entire people of Ukraine are ready to risk their lives to protect the motherland. Western leaders who reached Ukraine also praised the bravery and courage of the Ukrainian people.
However, information has started to surface that, in reality, the people of Ukraine are not ready for war. According to reports released by Western media, in the last one and a half years, about 20 thousand Ukrainian citizens have fled to other countries to escape the war. These citizens have sought refuge in Romania, Moldova, Hungary and Poland. For this, they are said to have obtained fake medical certificates and the help of human trafficking gangs. Ukrainian leaders have also admitted to being responsible for corruption in Ukraine’s military recruitment process.
Moreover, Ukraine kept its casualty figures private after the war against Russia began. Ukraine’s leaders and military claim to consider this necessary for national security. According to claims made by Russia and Western countries, Ukraine has lost more than 100,000 soldiers so far. It is said that there are 800,000 soldiers in the Ukrainian defence forces. Considering this, Ukraine has lost more than 10 per cent of its troops so far. In such a situation, the Ukrainian army will need new troops. However, analysts have expressed the possibility that Ukrainian citizens are fleeing abroad, and Ukraine will have to face a major crisis in the future.हिंदी
