Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Russian forces retreating from their positions around Kyiv are boobytrapping streets and civilian homes.

RELATED: Zelenskyy cautious about peace talks with Russia

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Russia is leaving a treacherous landscape in its wake as the invading forces retreat from around Kyiv, boobytrapping streets and civilian homes. “They are mining the whole territory, they are mining homes, mining equipment, even the bodies of people who were killed,” Zelenskyy said in a video address late Friday.

Zelenskyy urged residents to wait to resume their normal lives until landmines could be cleared and the danger of more shelling has passed. As talks between the nations resumed Friday, some Russian forces continued pulling away from the Ukraine capital, though Ukrainian and Western officials have warned the move is likely not a signal that the war will wind down. Rather, Russian forces are likely resupplying, they have said.

Putin wants ukraine allies to turn & drop them. He will make up stories & sabotage your success. Including these online trolls.

Next step is to discredit zelenskyy, ukraine & mainstream, social media. Create doubt. Make people lose interest. You messed with the wrong people, putin.

Russia needs to be held accountable

The Outlier April 3, 2022 - 4:30 AM

Russia needs to be held accountable for all of this including forcing them to make reparations to the people they've harmed and for the military support that had to be given to help Ukraine.

james Simon April 3, 2022 - 4:31 AM

HMMMMM🤔 TRYING FOR SOME MORE ……WAR CRIMES🤫

Russ Lund April 3, 2022 - 4:32 AM

"Ukraine is accused of attacking a Russian fuel depot."

Yeah? So what? Given Russia's actions , this is a defensible reaction. I don't think there's anything Russia could accuse Ukraine of that would cast them in a criminal light. It's like a bully complaining that he got punched by the guy he picked a fight with.

I guess booby traps are good for the males and new born babies right? Didn’t realize Ukraine faced a issues with boobies. Is the problem that the boobies aren’t good enough?

Poison and booby traps, the weapons of the coward

Is it possible to get rich by investing in the stock market or does it only work for those who are already rich?

D L April 3, 2022 - 4:38 AM

But when Russian soldiers are captured and disarmed they pout and cry and beg forgiveness and say they don’t want to be there but were forced.

If they were forced to be there wouldn’t target civilians and booby trap houses.

They should be treated like criminals and terrorists when they surrender. Instant justice. Boom. Dead.

The Abominable Kenny April 3, 2022 - 4:38 AM

oh hey just like they did when the left Afghanistan

the abyss April 3, 2022 - 4:38 AM

All this million of dollars help, what would it cost for Ukrainian to payback in the future? Just wondering, cos it seems so easy to “give” the money to help to other countries in direly need, but almost impossible to spend to fix our own problems on good days.

D L April 3, 2022 - 4:40 AM

Russia and Putin will suffer God’s wrath. Not Russian citizens, just the military and Putin himself.

joe woodchuck April 3, 2022 - 4:40 AM

That's incredibly evil.

I mean its war, what do you expect

Zelensky is a fraud.

Lena Siegel April 3, 2022 - 4:43 AM

Makes no sense. Putin isn’t even waging much of a war against Ukraine’s military, he seems focused on attacking citizens. Of course, our own resident in the White House blew up ten children and called them violent terrorists so…

I don’t believe any of it. If Biden is supporting something, my guess is, it’s BS propaganda that is somehow either:

a: making him and his family rich

Or

b: covering up corruption

Sadly: I believe Russia is working in the world’s best interests.

Kelly McGovern April 3, 2022 - 4:47 AM

This dude is such a tool

Welcome to war

larry warner April 3, 2022 - 4:48 AM

A ploy by Russia, they probably did it to gain support. Ukraine has only defended the country not attacked another. This is something Putin would do.

James Smith April 3, 2022 - 4:50 AM

If you want to blame someone blame Joe Biden, because it's his fault.

no more rain April 3, 2022 - 4:52 AM

Shameless war propaganda.

Can’t believe the media, even if it’s true

Cristos Sinatra April 3, 2022 - 4:53 AM

The Russians accusing Ukraine of attacking them on Russian land. This has to be the joke of the century. No one can say the rooskies don't have a sense of humor.

Joram Velasco (J.V.) April 3, 2022 - 4:54 AM

There are two types of people that support war:

Those who have never fought in one

Those who have no intentions in fighting one

Joram Velasco (J.V.) April 3, 2022 - 4:55 AM

When will people wake up and realize that Russia and Ukraine are on the same side.

This "war", is an act, a theatre, all staged, a long time ago. Good cop/ bad cop.

They're ALL working together towards a new world order. Time to wake up.

Bongo April 3, 2022 - 4:55 AM

are they spreading propaganda of war? wonder if the Nazi Azov are still using Ukrainian citizens as shields in populated areas? just asking

Zelenskyy is just as crooked and corrupt as Putin. We shouldn't be listening to either one.

Thomas Tolbert April 3, 2022 - 4:59 AM

Sounds like Russia! Hurt every civilian you can so their will is broken!

Thomas Archambault April 3, 2022 - 5:01 AM

This news channel is lying. Ukraine are the one boobytraping areas. You would have to be a complete idiot to believe these criminal news media’s.

Jane Eckardt April 3, 2022 - 5:02 AM

That's a "no flag" order if I've ever seen it from Moscow! Down with Putin!!! (~);} I'm so sorry you're going through this Ukraine, your President seems great!!!

Victor Martin April 3, 2022 - 5:04 AM

arming the civilians transforms them from "civilians " into " armed combatants " . Their entire population has become "fair game" as combatants.
Worst President ever..
