Russian media outlet Readovka has reported that Vladimir Putin may issue a new address to the nation on Wednesday, October 5 about changing the status of the ‘special military operation‘ in Ukraine
“The President may issue a new address to the nation today,” the news outlet said.
According to Readovka’s source, “it will be about changing the status of the special operation.”
Some people online have speculated that Putin could declare an anti-terror operation or war.
The news outlet added: “Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev has said that security gaps in Crimea need to be addressed immediately because of the increased level of terrorist threats there.
“For his part, Crimean head Serhiy Aksyonov earlier suggested that an anti-terrorist operation would be carried out there after the new regions are annexed to Russia.”
Prior to the report from Readovka, there had been rumours that Putin had commented for the first time on the situation with the withdrawal of the army in the VSU offensive and that a change in the format of the special operation was imminent.
“Now we understand that the format of the special military operation is changing. In connection with the entry of new regions into Russia, in accordance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation, a number of fundamental decisions were adopted,” he reportedly said on Tuesday, October 4.
“The worst time in its history is beginning for Ukraine,” Putin said.
