‘Lay down arms and go home’ Putin tells Ukraine’s armed forces

Russian President Vladimir Putin made a direct appeal to the military forces of Ukraine in his Thursday speech, urging them to lay down arms and go home.

Putin appealed the Ukrainian armed forces as he announced a ‘special military operation’ in Donbass.

This is what Putin told the Ukrainian armed forces: “Your fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers did not fight defending our common homeland for “today’s neo-Nazis to seize power. You took an oath of allegiance to the Ukrainian people – not to the anti-people junta that robs it and mocks your country.”

  • Putin urged Ukraine’s forces to immediately lay down arms and go home
  • The Russian President assured all the servicemen of the Ukrainian army that whoever makes this decision will be able to leave the combat zone without hindrance
