  1. It’s really disappointing after Zelensky says how important it is to deny the Russians the win!!!

    • Biggest thing is buying time, but AFU still holding and making rashists pay a high price for being there.

        • I understand the emotions of it also. That part of me I’ve had to tuck away a bit till I can fully process some things.

          • I admit it’s hard to stay unemotional when so many of our great people are dying and being wounded It’s just hard!

            • That it is, I know I will have to come to grips with some things from the last couple weeks. I just hit a kind of “shell shock” point where I’m kinda numb at the moment. It is extremely rough hearing about and seeing the sacrifices made by so many. Freedom is never free, it is paid for in blood.

  2. Ukraine needs 100% working air defense in Odesa, Dnipro, Kyiv and Lviv before any attempted offensive can start.
