The world was shocked on February 24, 2022, when Russian troops under the command of Vladimir Putin invaded Ukrainian territory.

In a national address, the Russian President announced the initiation of a special military operation, outlining its objective to protect the people of Donbas from "genocide" and to achieve "demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine."

Interrogation of a Russian Leaves Ukrainian Stunned

There was a video circulating online, posted by Ukrainians, showcasing the interrogation of a captured Russian found near the front lines. The video offered a startling glimpse into the efficacy of propaganda in Putin's Russia. Pushing the Russian man for answers, the Ukrainian asked, "In what way did Ukraine threaten the Vladimir region or your family personally?"

"It didn't…", the man being questioned confessed, his head lowered throughout the dialogue.

"You say you fought for your family," the Ukrainian retorted swiftly and candidly. Oddly enough, the Russian responded with a shocking justification. "Well, if things take a turn for the worse, Ukrainian soldiers might also invade us," he muttered nearly inaudibly.

This left his hearer taken aback, gasping for breath. He sputtered out a surprised "Oh shit," leading one to ask, do Russians genuinely believe they are in imminent danger of war?

The video post stirred up a flurry of commentary. "The Vladimir region east of Moscow… a pessimist, perhaps?" one person speculated. "No, not at all… if Moscow is to be encircled, then those are prophetic words!" another pointed out. "Good Lord, what are they telling them in the army," a third wondered aloud.
