2. Union Prime Minister Mahn Winn Khaing Thann claims that the NUG has the military capability to attack the enemy throughout the country.

“Everyone is already aware that the military council, despite pretending to be strong, is in a precarious situation from which it will be impossible for it to recover in any of the ongoing military, foreign, economic, social, and political sectors. We are superior in terms of military strength and military strategy, and we are in a position where we can attack the enemy everywhere in the country, but there are still challenges in terms of air defence and the ability to equip modern weapons and ammunition.”

The People’s Defensive Revolution began on September 7, 2021, and during over a year of the People’s Defensive Revolution, at least 20,000 members of the military were killed. At present, the people’s defence forces are reported to have the ability to dominate and control the main roads as well as the townships in Sagaing and Magway divisions.

This campaign is for three battalions of the 2nd, 4th, and 10th battalions of the Gangaw District of the People’s Defence Force (Htilin).”

Participate in the revolution in any position you can by continuing to buy our services,” said a family member of the Spring Tea Talk.
