On Saturday, Ukraine's President, Volodymyr Zelensky, urged the mothers of Russian soldiers to prevent their sons from being transported to Ukraine to fight. "I want to say this once again to Russian mothers, especially mothers of conscripts. Do not send your children to war in a foreign country," in a video message posted on Telegram, Zelensky said. "Check where your son is. And if you have the slightest suspicion that your son could be sent to war against Ukraine, act immediately" He claimed it was to keep him from being killed or captured. "Ukraine never wanted this terrible war. And Ukraine does not want it. But it will defend itself as much as necessary," he stated. Russia acknowledged the presence of conscripts in Ukraine for the first time on Wednesday, announcing that a number of them had been taken prisoner. Only professional soldiers were fighting at the time, according to Moscow. The announcement came as social media posts from mothers who had not heard from their kids who had been transferred to Ukraine grew in number. Kyiv asked mothers of Russian soldiers arrested on its soil to come pick up their children last week. The Ukrainian defense ministry made phone numbers and an email address public so that people might get information about them.
