We are the nation. We are Ukrainians.
Everyone knows that on February 24, 2022, Russia launched a massive war on us.

Today is the 41st day of WAR in Ukraine.
40 days of hell are behind us. 40 days of pain, tears, blood and deaths. 40 days of nightmare, that does not stop when morning comes.
The mornings of Ukrainians start differently.
Those 4,2 million that are abroad trying to adapt to the role of refugee. They are in different countries and each one has own tragedy behind. Some of them try to start new life in a new country, but most of them want to come back to Ukraine once the war is over.
Those who are in Ukraine wake up in the morning after another night of air alerts and check which city this night suffered from air strikes and if their friends and relatives in that city are alive.
Those who had to migrate within the country wake up with the hope that the day of homecoming is close.
Those who protect our country with the weapons in their hands can hardly have normal sleep during the night. Even though over time people get used to the sounds of battle. They mourn their brothers in arms, squeeze tighter the weapons and prepare for another fight that can be the last one for them.
Those who help our soldiers with supplies wake up happy if they managed to have few hours of sleep somewhere in a car or just on a floor after making deliveries of the required equipment to the frontline.
Those doctors and nurses who help saving lives of our soldiers and civilians seem not to sleep at all, continuing their heroic fight for life.
Those civilians murdered in Bucha with hands tied will not wake up.
Those civilians burnt by russian soldiers to hide the war crimes will not wake up.
Those civilians found in common graves will not wake up.
Those who died yesterday from shelling in Kharkiv and Mykolaiv will not wake up.
Those who are dying now in Mariupol without water will not wake up next morning.
How many proofs more needed?
How many more Ukrainians must die for the world finally to wake up?
It is the 41st morning, despite all the grief inside me, I repeat the same words.
We are the nation. We are Ukrainians!
