    The price of war is the lives of our people. Courageous and unconquered. Today we lost 4 defenders of Ukraine again. Sincere condolences. I urge all #N4 leaders and partners to do their utmost to preserve a full and comprehensive ceasefire.

    • This violent attack on Ukraine happened exactly where that caravan of Moskali tanks went a few days ago. I guess we knew it was coming. I remember commenting that I hoped we had some javelins in Toretsk to scrap the Moskali tanks.

  • So sorry for the loved ones who must now have to learn to live with terrible pain for so long.
    Evil continues to prosper. The time is well overdue for Ukraine to have peace, wealth and happiness, free from the cancer of putinazi imperialism.
