Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has called on Russians to resist the partial military mobilization announced by president Putin. According to Zelensky, 55 thousand Russian troops have been killed in this war. „Want more? No? Then protest, fight back, run away or surrender to the Ukrainian army”, Zelensky says in a video message in Russian language. He has accused the Russian citizens of being accessories to the crimes their troops are committing against the Ukrainians. Clashes between the two armies have carried on both in the south and eastern Ukraine. In another development, until Tuesday, four regions in southern and eastern Ukraine, under Moscow’s total or partial control, are to vote in a referendum on joining Russia. The polls, hastily organized after being announced this week, have been widely condemned in the west as illegitimate.
