On Feb 24, 2022 russian invaders started what they expected to be a several days only victorious operation. But from the day one everything went wrong for russians.
Instead of easy walk they have been stuck in the long term full scale war, which they didn’t plan and where they lose the manpower and military potential in enormous numbers every day.
Yes, now we see the supplies to Ukraine of long range artillery, helicopters, tanks, air defense systems, spare parts for jet fighters, armored vehicles, anti-ship missiles, etc. and can’t wait seeing HIMARS/M270 MLRS in action.
But during first days of the russian invasion the western weapons were represented by JAVELIN and NLAW only, which of course were good and keep on frightening invaders still now, but they were not and are not the decisive weapon in this war.
Ukrainian servicemen, both men and women, were and remain our key weapon.
From the day one they had no hesitations, no rose-colored glasses and no illusions regarding russian invaders and met them with all available weapons.
From the day one they have been proving Ukraine relies on a large, professional, trained and motivated army.
From the day one Ukrainian Armed Forces have shown high level of morale.
From the day one Ukrainian servicemen have relied on nation-scale support.
Besides professional servicemen, Ukrainian forces have been filled with civil people from all the industries and from all around the country.
Each business, each organization, each city and each community contributed people to strengthen Ukrainian forces.
Who are the Ukrainian warriors on the photos from the frontline?
Besides professional warriors you will easily find among them farmers, IT specialists, miners, lawyers, policemen, students, bankers, workers, teachers, doctors, singers, professional athletes, cashiers, truck drivers, journalists and so on.
All of them, who changed their usual job for weapons in their hands, are true heroes of Ukraine as well as all those for whom it is the main job.
Our lives depend on how well they are equipped and trained.
Our lives depend on how fast they will be supplied with necessary weapons.
Our lives depend on them.
Glory to all defenders of Ukraine!
We are the nation. We are Ukrainians!
