In a video address to the nation on May 19th, the UkrainePresident Zelenskyy said the allegedly high-power laser weapon claimed by Russia is only the leader’s wartime propaganda. It indicates a complete failure of the Russian invasion.
He pointed out that the more propaganda about the “Wonder Weapon”, the more Russia lost in the war. Russia’s highest state and military levels were trying to turn the tide in the war by activating allegedly “Wonder Weapon”. It also shows that they are afraid to be responsible for the catastrophic crimes made in Ukraine.
Zelenskyy’s speech was in response to Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov. It is reported that Russia was ready to use high-power laser weapons that can burn various targets, including drones and satellites. The system prototype was already in use in Ukraine, said Borisov at a conference in Moscow on May 18. No verifiable information has been leaked.
