Ukraine's Zelensky: There is chaos in Russia, bring your troops home

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Saturday that a revolt by Wagner mercenary troops in Russia exposed complete chaos in the country.

"Today the world can see that the masters of Russia control nothing. And that means nothing. Simply complete chaos. An absence of any predictability," Zelensky said in his nightly video address.

Zelensky said Ukrainians would not be silent, would not remain inactive, and that "the security of Europe's eastern flank depends strictly on our defences".

And addressing Putin while switching from Ukrainian into Russian, Zelensky said: "The longer your troops remain on UKrainian land, the greater the devastation they will bring to Russia."
