“If today or tomorrow no changes in strategy are made, I will be forced to speak with the leadership of the Defence Ministry and the leadership of the country to explain the real situation on the ground to them.
“It’s a very interesting situation. It’s astounding, I would say.”

“And I am glad that we took that decision, and I am proud of every deputy!
