“Unfortunately, in the current situation, it is extremely difficult for the Air Force to cover the sky in this region, because part of the country’s air defense system was destroyed by Russian ballistic and cruise missile strikes,” the Defense Ministry added.


“The invaders do not dare to storm the city, because they are to be killed, so they resorted to aerial terrorism, killing peaceful Kharkiv residents,” the Ukrainian military stated.

  1. That is genocide.
    There can surely be no alternative to an intervention now from Nato forces.

    • It seems to me that NATO was created EXACTLY for the reason we are witnessing today, but they stay out of the fight because of details and because a couple of their members do not recognize the new Hitler. Shame on them.
      Evil thrives when good men sit and do nothing.
