According to Denis Prokopenko, the best cure for “despondency, panic or apathy” is active involvement in ongoing historical processes.
Russia’s war against Ukraine may continue for a long time, because the Kremlin will never give up its geopolitical goals. Azov commander Denis Prokopenko (“Redis”) shared his opinion on Facebook.
He said uncertainty and the possibility that fighting could continue for years weighs on civilians and motivated military personnel. Russia does not want to let Ukraine out of its sphere of influence.
“The war will continue as long as we are able to resist. Any “truce” or “agreement” will be another time-out for the enemy, in order to accumulate resources for a further offensive,” Prokopenko said.
He said that Ukrainians should not lose the ability to mobilize all necessary resources at a critical moment and work to the brink of superhuman capabilities. However, many people in Ukraine and abroad refuse to accept reality. Russian information and psychological attacks also add fuel to the fire.
“Azov” has been in the war for ten years. For us, it all started long before February 24, 2022. During this time, we learned to ignore fatigue and not despair; realized that, perhaps, not only our youth, but our entire lives will pass on the fronts of the war for the independence of Ukraine; “We realized that there is no other path other than the one we chose consciously,” said Radish.
He wrote that the best cure for “dejection, panic or apathy” is active involvement in ongoing historical processes.
“We do not know the exact day, month or year when we will win and be able to return to our families. But we are confident that no matter how long the war goes on, we have reliable brothers next to us, love for the Motherland is in our hearts, and in our hands — weapons,” Prokopenko noted.
He said that those who are not currently serving in the Ukrainian Defense Forces must either take up arms or become a reliable rear for the army.
“This war will last for a long time. It can take years. It depends on us what exactly we do every day to bring our victory closer,” said Radish.
Earlier it was reported that the aerial reconnaissance officer of the Ukrainian Armed Forces answered whether it was necessary to mobilize women. Fighter Igor Lutsenko noted that it is necessary to attract more women into the ranks of the Ukrainian army. In particular, the medical units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are especially in need of this.
