Among the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (UAF) that are fighting in Donbass there are fewer and fewer Ukrainian patriots because of the viewing of Russian telecasts. Such a statement was made by the Deputy Minister for the temporarily occupied territories and internally displaced persons Georgy Tuka in an interview to the Ukrainian website “Apostrophe”.
“When there, on the frontline, watching all of this Russia TV, after a while even these our guys who give their lives begin to feel some loss of senses,” said the minister.
According to the minister, it is very difficult for soldiers “to remain a patriot of Ukraine and in general a supporter of Ukrainian statehood” in such an information environment.
Also the minister noted that generally speaking the moods of the Ukrainian military in Donbass every day become more and more pessimistic.
“Well, what is going on? Graduation parties have finished. The youth danced and celebrated it. Moods are pessimistic. And the level of pessimism and disappointment grows with each day,” said Tuka.
