Putin to mothers of Russian soldiers: ‘Your children are heroes’ – World

“For you who have children in the combat zone, Mother’s Day is associated with a feeling of anxiety and worry.” Russian President Vladimir Putin said this when he met a delegation of mothers of soldiers involved in the military operation in Ukraine, according to reports from the RIA Novosti news agency. The meeting took place on the eve of Mother’s Day, which is celebrated in Russia tomorrow.

Putin defined “heroes” the soldiers fighting in Ukrainea, during a meeting held today with a delegation of their mothers. Putin also expressed his condolences to the mothers of the fallen: “We share the pain for those who have lost a child,” he said. Then he invited the mothers to don’t believe all the “fake news, hoaxes and lies” spread through the Internet. “There are many information attacks” because “information is also a combat weapon” that has become more effective with modern technologies, Putin said.

Russia rules out that Ukraine can reconquer Crimea. This was stated by Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, quoted by Tass, in response to what was stated by Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky.

More than 15,000 people have disappeared in Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian invasion on February 24, an official of the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) has announced, as reported by the Reuters news agency on its website. It is not clear at present how many people have been forcibly displaced, are detained in Russia, are alive and separated from their family members, or have died, said ICMP program director for Europe, Matthew Holliday.

In any case, the search for those missing will take years, even after the fighting has ended, Holliday added, stressing that the figure of 15,000 is conservative considering that in the port city of Mariupol alone, authorities estimate up to 25,000 people dead or missing. “The numbers are huge and the challenges Ukraine faces are vast,” Holliday said.

50% of homes in Kiev are still without electricity, water has been restored everywhere while a third of homes in Kiev has now been reached by heating. This is the point of the situation this morning in the capital made by the mayor of the city Vitaliy Klitschko, taken up by Ukrainska Pravda. As for mobile communications, the operation of the networks of all mobile operators depends on power supply. During the day, it is planned to connect electricity to all consumers in turn, for 3 hours.

Meanwhile, Russian bombing continues on the city of Zaporizhzhia, where a hospital was damaged last night by a missile attack, as reported on Telegram by the governor of the region, Oleksandr Starukh. “The enemy again attacked the outskirts of Zaporizhzhia. This time the missiles fell near the hospital. Fortunately, people were not injured, but the same cannot be said of the building. Dozens of windows were broken,” Starukh said. .

And the number of dead rose to seven after the Russian bombing yesterday on Kherson. This was announced by the regional governor Yaroslav Yanushevych. About 20 injured
in the southern Ukrainian city returned under the control of Kiev, but which the Russians have resumed attacking with artillery and multiple rocket launchers from the opposite bank of the Dnieper, it was reported.
