Winning back homes and lands is priceless!
It has begun, the hunter has become the hunted. No longer is Ukraine reacting to Russian aggression. Today the Russians must decide how they will respond to Ukraine.
Reports today indicate Ukrainian advances on three fronts in the Kherson oblast. The main advance is of course towards Kherson but two other advances further east will fix Russian troops in their positions preventing them from moving.
Ukrainian Generals know that the advance must not falter. These attacks must gain and maintain momentum. They must push through to the Dnipro River. If they do this they will encircle Kherson and isolate the city. If they take all the bridges they cut off the whole Russian army.
Ukrainian soldiers have shown that they have the skills, the weapons and the courage to take the fight to the enemy.
Ukraine has damaged all the bridges to the Russian rear. Russian supplies cannot come forward and the Russians can only retreat across the Dnipro on foot. When they retreat they must leave everything behind. Russian families in Crimea are flooding across the Kerch Bridge because they know that Crimea is no longer safe. Their confidence in Putin has gone home with them.
The time is now, the battle to win back Ukraine has started. The next few days are vital. The price will be high, but winning back their homes and their lands must be priceless! My prayers go with all the brave soldiers of Ukraine.
