Russian Invasion: Kremlin: Military Operation Because of West Now “War”

The Kremlin has been waging war against Ukraine for two years. Only now does he want to name the fighting that way. The West is to blame for this.

More than two years after the start of its brutal war of aggression against Ukraine, the Kremlin is now abandoning the trivializing term “special military operation” – and blaming the West for it.

“It started like a special military operation, but as soon as the clique arose, when the collective West became involved on Ukraine’s side, it became a war for us,” said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov in an interview with the magazine “Argumenty i Fakty.” “. He called on Russians to unite and “internal mobilization.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the attack on Ukraine on February 24, 2022. He spoke of a special military operation. The Russian military then occupied large parts of the neighboring country, but was unable to take the capital Kiev as planned. Later, with Western military help, the Ukrainian troops were able to drive the occupying troops back from some parts of the country.

But Russia still occupies almost a fifth of Ukraine, including Crimea, which was annexed in 2014. Tens of thousands of people, including many civilians, were killed in the fighting on the ground, but also as a result of ongoing Russian attacks with missiles and drones. Because of the halting Western military aid, Russian troops are now back on the offensive and trying to conquer further Ukrainian territory.
