12:14 am
the important thing we're trying to do here is connect with people who are obviously not in your hine, but they know there is an invasion taking place. it can be very difficult to relate to what, what is happening if they have not had the same experience themselves. what message do you want them to take away? what is the biggest misconception about this, this conflict? first of all, ah, what is the main that will stand till yet till there, till our victory, of course, will get the victory, our nation i united and strong and bravery. and every time when i'm talking with a journalist, i tried to spread this information, tried to impressed by my wards by what i'm saying. try to impress all the people that we are not. we will not give up it. first of all,
