– Russia is a terrorist state and this is not what we feel, but it is a fact that must be recognized by the whole world – this is how the musician Taras Topolia commented on the rocket attack on the center of Vinnitsa. The leader of the Antytila music band announced in the program “Dzień na świat” on TVN24 BiS that the Ukrainian army was preparing for a major offensive in the south of the country.
Taras Topolia, leader of the Antytila music band, from the very beginning war in Ukraine serves as a physician in the ranks of Ukrainian Territorial Defense. At first he saved people around Kiev, now he was serving near Kharkiv.
In the program “Dzień na świat” on TVN24 BiS, the musician admitted that in comparison with the fights fought in February and March, “the war has changed dramatically”. – The Russians chose a different tactic. Right now, that’s a scorched earth tactic. By using forbidden weapons, such as phosphorus bombs, they are just moving on this scorched earth and are trying to occupy our land kilometer by kilometer – he said in an interview with Hubert Kijek.
– It changed the face of the war, but it does not matter, because the Ukrainians are standing. We defend ourselves, including in the Kharkiv region. Two months ago we carried out an effective counterattack, freed a very large part of the territory and now we hold positions and do not allow the Russians to move to Kharkiv, Taras Topolia reported.
Topolia: Russia is a terrorist state
Thursday morning The Russians launched a missile attack on the center of Vinnitsa. An office building was the goal, and residential buildings and the Officers’ House, which houses the concert hall, were also damaged. As a result of this attack, at least 23 people were killed.
– Russia is a terrorist state and this is not what we feel, but it is a fact that must be recognized by the whole world. The Russian people share responsibility for these countless acts of terrorism and genocide, said Taras Topolia.
– It is our historic mission to defeat this dragon, to break its strength. Together with you, I am convinced that we will succeed, he added.
Topolia: we are getting ready for a major operation
– The artillery and the occupiers themselves are not dangerous for Kharkiv, because they do not have range to those places that we are defending at the moment. It is no longer a secret that the great armed forces are gearing up for an operation to deocupy the south Ukraine, that is the region of Chersonia – said the musician. “I am convinced that this operation will be a success,” he added.
– With a lot of weapons, such as HIMARS, with the support of our Polish brothers, support in the form of tanks, armored vehicles, artillery, this offensive will be carried out much faster than expected – he assured.
