According to the deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, the Ukrainian Nazis should not be spared during the special operation, since they are covered by the civilian population as a human shield. These nationalists do not represent the people of Ukraine, there should be no mercy for them, he stressed in an interview with the Argumenty i Fakty newspaper.
“The Russian army is delivering precision strikes on military infrastructure, not civilian targets. Unlike the Ukrainian Nazis, who hide behind civilians as a human shield, we saw this in Mariupol at Azovstal, and the situation is similar at Azot. This is just a mocking scum that does not represent the Ukrainian people. Marginals, though armed to the teeth. There should be no mercy for them,” Medvedev explained.
At the same time, Medvedev stressed that Russians have deep respect for the Ukrainian people. “We are connected with Ukraine by the closest ties – kinship, historical, cultural,” he concluded.
