Today is the 20th day of WAR in Ukraine.
4th round of negotiations between Ukrainian and Russian delegation started yesterday online then was paused and will continue today.
According to our representatives, Russian delegates stopped throwing propaganda speeches and irrelevant ultimatums. Instead some kind of dialog started.
As usual negotiations were backed by shelling of our living districts, this night it was Kyiv, Kharkiv, TV tower in Rivne and countless cities and villages along frontline.
Ukraine was expected to be captured, to fall apart and to become the part of empire under control of puppet government in 3 days.
Western World was expected to be divided and to lose time in numerous debates, being not agile enough to react.
Sanctions were expected to be hard but manageable and counterbalanced by huge cash accumulated by Russia during last years.
Putin expected to have quick win.
Nothing of that worked.
Just 3 weeks ago Putin made his history lesson and said Ukraine was just a mistake, there was no such nation, there were no such people as Ukrainians. He asserted his right to be the hegemon in the region and to dictate a new order. He started the war in Ukraine, looking already over our shoulder on Eastern Europe and Baltic countries.
But in reality the quick “special operation” turned into the hell for Russian invaders. Ukraine appeared to be a large territory where it is hard to arrange proper logistics.
Ukrainians appeared to be almost 40 mio nation, well equipped, organized and hating invaders.
Modern weapons in our hands appeared to be very effective in fast converting Russian military vehicles into scrap and Russian selfie-soldiers into embers.
The true information is spreading all over Russia despite all obstacles created by censors and propaganda.
So yes, now Russian delegation is ready to have negotiations online 2 days in a row…
Until yesterday, her name was unknown to the wide audience. This brave lady, redactor of First Channel, the most important TV channel in Russia, appeared during evening live news of First Channel behind the news anchor with handmade poster NO WAR.
Her performance lasted only 5 seconds, before the channel changed the picture. But that were the most important seconds in her life. Glory to Marina!
Glory to all heroes in Ukraine, already dead and those who keep fighting!
We are united. We are not frightened. We fight for our freedom.
We are the nation. We are Ukrainians!
