Russian pilot admits: “Ukraine will win this war, no matter what”

On August 23, a Russian pilot landed his Mi-8 helicopter at an Ukrainian airfield and surrendered. Now the 28-year-old is calling on other Russian pilots to do the same. This reports The Kyiv Independent.

He addresses his comrades directly: “If you do what I have done, you will not regret it at all. You will be provided with everything for the rest of your lives”, he promises. “You will also be offered work everywhere, whatever you want to do.”

Also, the Russian pilot clears up the Russian propaganda that there are only Nazis and fascists in Ukraine. “What is happening now is simply genocide of the Ukrainian people. Both of the Ukrainian and Russian. The basis of my action is not to contribute to this crime. Ukraine will win this war, no matter what, simply because the people have rallied so much… Nobody wants this war. When Ukraine wins is just a matter of time.”
