Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Dubs Zelenskyy’s Call for 450,000+ Conscripts a Fundraising Scheme

Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, overthrown in 2014, posted today his argument that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is looking to mobilize another half a million men so that he could have grounds to demand more money from his Western backers, reports RTreports RT. Kiev sees drafting half a million men as its “main task” at the moment, Azarov wrote on Facebook today. He continued: They believe that “everything must be done to ensure that everyone who is of appropriate age is mobilized. Zelenskyy needs this in order to demand both money and weapons from the West.” In this case, the Ukrainian leader could say “you see, we’re gathering an army of half a million. It must be equipped, it must be armed. These are huge costs and expenses.”
