FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Ukrainian soldiers are sceptical that Western sanctions will deter Russian troops” – below is their description.

On the frontline in Ukraine’s east, battle-weary soldiers are sceptical that US sanctions against Moscow and Kiev’s appeal for NATO help will deter Russian strongman Vladimir Putin. Faced with the largest deployment of Russian troops on Ukraine’s borders since 2014, President Volodymyr Zelensky has requested more tangible help from the West, but many Ukrainian troops say they know they are on their own.
