Zelensky tells Russian mothers: 'Do not send your children to war'

Ukrainian president Vlodymyr Zelensky appealed to Russian mothers in his latest video address on Friday, urging them not to send them to the battlefield and to exercise vigilance on their whereabouts.

Qazet.az reports according to an impassioned plea, he said "I want to say this once again to Russian mothers, especially mothers of conscripts. Do not send your children to war in a foreign country."

He called on them not to "believe the promises that they will be sent somewhere for exercises .. or non-combat conditions," and urged them to "act immediately" if there were any suspicions they were being sent to fight in Ukraine.
