Ukrainians perform well, we learn very fast - Azov fighter Romanov on international assistance to Ukraine

Ruslan Romanov, an Azov fighter with the 3rd Detached Assault Brigade, says that Ukraine needs all the help it can get, because Ukrainians are fast learners

He said this in an interview with Espreso.TV.

In this way, the military answered the question of whether the level of assistance to Ukraine is sufficient today.

"You know, everything is important to us now. Starting even with jeeps, although now it is better to buy armored vehicles. The main thing for me is to keep the guys and girls alive. So, in principle, any help is always needed. Ukrainians have a very good quality - we learn everything very quickly. So it doesn't matter what comes there, we will learn everything quickly. We will drive out this enemy, because it cannot go on like this," he explains. 

Romanov also spoke about the situation in his hometown of Krasnodon, Luhansk region, and noted that after the victory, there will be a very difficult filtering process, as many saboteurs entered the city in 2014-2016.

"In 2014-2016, many people traveled to the occupied territories and bought any real estate there for cheap. They forged Ukrainian passports and traveled to the territory of Ukraine, where they conducted subversive activities. Therefore, filtering all this will be very difficult. Only time will tell how to do it properly," the soldier says.

The Azov fighter also reminded that it is too early to relax for those in the calmer regions of Ukraine.

"If Kyiv is calm now, it does not mean that they will not come here again. People from all regions of the country should realize this. War can start from the other side," he says.

In addition, Romanov wonders how men who went abroad during the war without any practical reason to do so feel.

"I compare it to a hill with a three-story house on it, where the lowest floor has started to flood or thieves have started to come there. While the rest of the house lives quietly and thinks that it will not affect them, just like in Ukraine, after taking everything downstairs, the thieves move upstairs. If they get away with it, they can move on. This raises the question of how men feel abroad. For me, they are not people. There are, of course, disabled people or professions that will develop better there. But I don't even know what to say about the rest. Both during the ATO and the full-scale invasion, many young men died, they were the color of the nation. And the dumb guys left. Why did the children die and they left? For me, they are not people," the Azov soldier emphasized.
