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

Today is the 8th day of WAR.
Children in the photo have been living in this basement in Kharkiv all these days.
On the 24th of February, the Western world woke up and realized that unbelievable was happening.
That day Ukraine woke up from sirens, explosions and crying children.
That day no illusion left for anyone in the country.
That day divided the history of Ukraine into two chapters, before and after.
That day my sons, 6 and 12 years old, have become several years older in one day.
Today we expect 2nd round of negotiations in Belarus between Ukrainian and Russian delegation. But we expect no noticeable progress during these negotiations.
Invaders have been strengthening their negotiation position by the only possible way which left in their arsenal – bombing our cities. This night it was again Kyiv, Kharkiv, Mariupol, Kherson and smaller cities and towns… some of them are not cities and towns any longer, just ruins.
Position of invaders for the negotiations sounds like this:
– Ukraine must recognize Crimea as part of Russia
– Ukraine must recognize sovereignty of so-called DNR and LNR
– demilitarization of the country.
– denazification of the country.
Just a pure populism and propaganda for internal zombie-audience. That could have worked in case Kyiv was captured and Ukrainian army was dispersed in 2 days like it was planned. That could have worked in case the Western world was paralized and not able to respond jointly.
But now invaders, who yesterday first time officially recognised losses, even if reduced them 10x times at least, need to deal with our negotiating position:
– full cease fire
– all troops must leave the territory of Ukraine, including Donetsk oblast, Lugansk oblast and Crimea
– country-aggressor must pay reparations for all the damage caused
Invaders need to hurry up, time is playing against them, the real picture of this devastating war is leaking piece by piece to their ivory tower created by propaganda during all these years.
So let’s see what negotiations will bring us.
Meanwhile Russian ships continue to maneuver in the Black Sea threating Odessa with landing. Well, nobody is scared on our side, our forces in Odessa can’t wait this operation to start, everybody wants to sink those ugly ships.
Ukraine gained independence in 1991.
In 2014 we regained it during Maidan.
Now in 2022 we fight for it again.
We are the nation. We are Ukrainians!
