Evening sets over Kyiv . Our first dinner gives testimony to the resolute determination of this nation to stand firm and not to give in, although there is also a growing realization of the magnitude of the challenge ahead in a long and brutal conflict.
What’s the logic behind bombing shopping centers? Probably to destroy the living conditions for the population and force them to leave.
The air and missile strikes in aren’t random. The pattern of them is clear: destroy the industry and the infrastructure. 264 enterprises, 270 bridges and 22 oil depots have been destroyed in addition to 45 million m2 of residential space. And strikes are continuing daily.
Enormous lines of trucks and cars at the border today. We counted 32 km of trucks on the side. And waiting time is now five (5!) days. This is distinctly damaging to both economies.
Certainly reason to celebrate tonight 🇪🇺 , but we should remember hard fights in the 🇪🇺 councils some years back with those even refusing to put on paper that is a European country. We prevailed, the Eastern Partnership was set up and here we are. @sikorskiradek
This old lady from the Kherson region has a story to tell about the occupation forces.
Last night saw massive missile and air strikes against targets also in western and largely from bases in Belarus. Tu22M bombers fired heavy missiles.
If they were to watch this in the Kremlin they might start to understand what they are up against .
It’s indisputable that is using indiscriminate artillery and rocket fire against civilian targets in cities in . These photos from the center of the country’s second largest city shows clearly what is happening.
Now there is a publicity campaign in Moscow saying that is a country of Nazis. Are there any limits to these guys? Or are they preparing a ”denazifying” operation against as well? I think this will further solidify support for joining @NATO .
We have no right to ignore what’s said on state TV these days. This unfortunately has all the potential for getting much worse.
Remarkable exchange. And shows that tensions are building up in over the high losses in the war it has started.
Tomorrow morning will officially announce its intention to seek @nato membership. And will follow within days.
Chilling. Prisoner transport vehicles lining up in Kherson after the city was captured by after several days of fighting. Darkness descends. An empire of evil has come.
