Soldiers’ mothers beg Putin to get them back from Ukraine

International, More

The mothers of Russian paratroopers captured by Ukrainian forces address Russian officials, asking them to help bring the soldiers back from captivity alive.

I’m the chairman of soldiers’ mothers’ council of Kostroma Region. I was addressed by mothers, wives and relatives of boys who were captured in Ukraine.

I ask the President and the Minister of Defense to help release them and bring them back alive. As soon as possible. Well, as soon as they manage to do that.

Dear President, Minister of Defense, military commanders! My son, Egor Valerievich Pochtoyev, has been captured in Ukraine. I beg you, by God, bring me my child back alive! And bring back all the other boys captured together with him. My son, my boys, we stand beside you. Guys, we will bring you back from this trouble whatever it takes. If the commanders won’t do it, then we, your mothers, will.
I’m Sergey Arhipov’s mother. Sergey, we love you, we are waiting for you. We are doing what we can and addressing everyone. Help us!
I’m Sergey Smirnov’s mother… We ask the President and the Minister of Defense to help solve this conflict. Please help us bring them back alive.
I’m Alexey Generalov’s wife. Alexei, we love you and we wait for you to be back. Please save them, help us bring them back home safe and sound! I ask the Government, the Minister of Defense, the President: please bring them back!
