Petr Ruchyov, addressing the Ukrainian military:
We challenge your champions to a tank biathlon competition. According to the customs that had been established in antiquity, the fights of the strongest warriors before a fight were appointed only when a complex or uncertain situation arose. The second year of the confrontation, which did not lead to a significant change in the situation, can reasonably be considered such a situation.
An officer of the Armed Forces of the DPR seems to be overlooking the fact that the Ukrainian authorities first need to have a “difficult and uncertain situation” to hide their economic failures, transferring the anger of the people to the operation in the Donbas and the people of this region themselves.
