Russian invasion in UkraineThe lives of over 40 million Ukrainians will be forever changed by this decision. Many were shocked at Russia’s rash decision to declare war. The resolve to resist the vicious attack quickly took over. Each person, whether they are soldiers, volunteers or civilians doing their everyday work, has a role to play in the enormous effort to maintain independence and not become a gray, bloodless mass controlled by cynical dictators. This seems like people are trying to make up with their courage and kindness for all the evils that this war has unleashed. These are some stories.
Before the invasion, Lesya was a human right activist.She is also an avid sailor. When the war began, one of her first actions was to volunteer at the military recruiting centre. She claims that she was not lucky. The line was too long, so she had to go home.
He chose to do what was most important to him, which was to deliver critical food and supplies for those who didn’t have anyone else to help. The first days of war saw enemy saboteurs invading Kiev and a possible attack imminent. This brought an end to life in kyiv. Lesya had a car and was willing to help. Later on, too Helped evacuate residents from villages nearby that were attacked by the Russians.
While he trains, he gives brief updates about his life. He says that his shooting skills, despite not having any military experience, are still not very good. Bullet holes located around the center of your practice target tell a different story. Lesya estimates that it takes 250,000 bullets to make a kill. Most soldiers are killed by artillery firing. The bullets are called “seed” by soldiers and used as a medium for exchange.
Lesya continues to create a website about the 126 Belarusian females who were imprisoned following protests against Alexander Lukashenko’s electoral fraud during the August 2020 presidential election.
Oleg BaturinKakhovka’s activist and journalist was one of the first to be taken by the Russians in the Kherson region, south. A group of uniformed men seized him while he was walking down the street and took him to a minibus. He was forced to lie down on his stomach while the men placed their cigarettes and feet on his back. They threatened to kill him.
They didn’t. They tried to intimidate Oleg and beat him. They didn’t give him much to eat or drink, and they did not tell him where he was. They never made any specific requests or explained why he had been detained. Oleg stated in his first message to him after his release that they knew who he is and wanted to destroy him. It is important to show the journalist what will happen.
Oleg was not alone. There were many others who were detained, most of whom were veterans or serving Ukrainian soldiers. It was worse. He will never hear the pain-stricken cries again.
Oleg claimed in an interview, that his captors were surprised at a protest heard on the streets once. They complained to one another “We have come to free them and they are doing these things”. They said, however, that once they capture Mikolaiv or Odessa they will make things right.”
Oleg was released 8 days after being held captive.The first night at home, he was unable to sleep. Since then, she has felt better. He said that he has been greatly helped by the support of his family and friends as well as random people who have heard about his story.
Olena was born in Cherniguiv, where she grew up.A welcoming, predominantly Russian-speaking town near the Belarusian border is called. The Russian invasion is creating a tragedy in the area. The city has been under constant bombardment for weeks. Little food, little electricity, and no running water.
