Iftar, the evening meal breaking the Ramadan fast
Is now a national celebration in #Ukraine
Even at the front lines.
📊 Hundreds of thousands of Muslims live in Ukraine.
Roughly 𝟏% of the total population, but 𝟏𝟐% in Crimea
💡 As Muslim Tatars lived in #Crimea since the 13th century.
Though many were deported during Soviet occupation.
💔 Many were forced to flee their homes again
Following #Russia’s invasion of Crimea in 2014.
In Ukraine, Muslims, Christians and Jews
Fight side by side to reclaim their homeland.
This is what true #Diversity looks like.
Definitely evidence against russians of a Ukrainian “nazi” government. I’m sure that muslims would have been next if hitler had his way, since ethnic Jews share a lot of ancestry (as described in both the Bible, and Quran) with Arabs and other peoples in the Middle East. Mostly the differences are about theological matters, which are still quite valid, but that’s another discussion.
This is more about showing how false putin’s invasion “excuses” are.
All this proves (once again) that Ukraine is as far away from Nazism as can be. If there is a Nazi state, it’s definitely mafia land.
Leave it to dictator Poopin to bring Ukraine together in 2014 and even more in 2023. Ukraine has rejected Hitler 2.0. History will remember president Zelensky and Poopin will become a footnote.
