Jakub Maciejewski, our war correspondent in Donbas, got a unique recording of the Ukrainian attack on Russian positions. In his opinion, Russian soldiers no longer want to fight and die for Putin and Ukrainians are preparing for another offensive. The defenders’ morale is bolstered by the symbol of Mariupol and the heroes whose battle and death held back the Russians for more than two months.
The role of Azovstal in Ukraine was played by Westerplatte in Poland in early September 1939. The 80 days of Mariupol made young Ukrainians fight with extraordinary dedication. They are aware that they can become such heroes themselves
– said Jakub Maciejewski.
A deadly blow
Our Donbass correspondent also presented a unique recording he had received from the Ukrainians, showing the effects of Ukrainian troops attacking Russian positions.
The Ukrainians gave me this recording, they said, “Watch the orcs grill when they want to enter our country.” I can assure you that there are many more such units preparing a barbecue for Russian orcs
– reported Jakub Maciejewski.
The Ukrainians plan to end this war by the end of the year, including retaking the Russian-occupied territories in 2014. That’s the belief here. At this point, a fierce defense is underway here so that the Russians lose as many men and equipment as possible. It’s a waste of morale and time. Today I was at the funeral of a Ukrainian soldier and saw moving scenes. The commander behaved like a son and brother of the father of the hero who lost his life. The friends of the deceased know what they are fighting for, they know that their friend’s death was for something. The Russians can’t say that. It is necessary to cultivate patriotic values that strengthen the state
– emphasized Jakub Maciejewski
