The Russian leader also announced a partial military mobilisation, stating that 300,000 reservists will be called up.
He said;“In its aggressive anti-Russian policy, the West has crossed every line.”
“This isn’t a bluff. And those who try to blackmail us with nuclear weapons should know that the weathervane can turn and point towards them.’’
Recall that Russian President Vladimir Putin, had ordered the invasion of Ukraine due to Political differences between both Countries. Russia and Ukraine have been fighting for over six months.
