Today is the 24th day of WAR in Ukraine.
According to UN report, almost 10 million of Ukrainians were forced to leave their homes in an attempt to find a safe place. More than 3,3 million of them crossed the border. Each new day of war brings more and more tears and blood to our country.
Most of efforts of invaders are now focused on Mariupol and Eastern frontline; they keep on slowly moving forward despite heavy losses from their side. They benefit from the domination in the sky on that direction.
Most of Russian air strikes, shelling and bombing is happening now exactly there.
The land is literally burning there and the sky is dark from smoke.
The sky that used to be blue and peaceful.
Meanwhile yesterday in Moscow, Russians arranged huge Z meeting. There were at least 200 000 people there to celebrate 8th anniversary of annexation of Crimea and to support current military campaign. Big show with Putin, Russian propagandists and singers voicing from the stage their traditional bullshit messages about Nazi in Ukraine.
“Z” stands for “zombies”, no?
For those who still believe in street protests in Russia, please stop being naive.
During 3 weeks of war, just several thousand dared to protest in Russia.
But hundreds of thousands gathered for Z meeting yesterday.
And many millions happily watched it on TV.
Thanks to effective propaganda and blockade of independent mass media, Putin still relies on huge support of Russia population.
The war in Ukraine can’t be stopped by diplomacy.
The war in Ukraine will not stop because of revolution in Russia.
The war in Ukraine will not end one beautiful morning because of palace coup in Russia.
The war will last until military capabilities of Russian forces are depleted.
Long way ahead of us and huge price is to be paid.
But we are bringing the day of our victory closer each day.
This is done by Ukrainian warriors, volunteers, rescuers, medical workers, firefighters and ordinary citizens helping the country with all possible means.
This is done by new sanctions against Russian elites and new supplies of weapons to Ukraine.
This is done by amazing people in hosting countries that welcome Ukrainian women and children in their homes.
This is done by love, dignity, freedom and humanity in our hearts.
This is done by murals, like this one on a photo from Paris.
We are the nation. We are Ukrainians!
