And this is about the stupidity of russian marauders, who will send the loot in Ukraine through the Belarusian mail to russia. Now we know their data and even faces. Thanks to the caring Belarusians who posted on the network all the information and addresses of who and where sent the loot.

At the entrance to the Kiev Memorial Park there is a sculpture of a very thin girl with an extremely sad look holding several classes of wheat in her hands. Behind her back is the Candle of Remembrance, a monument with details reminiscent of authentic embroidery that can be found on traditional Ukrainian costumes. This is a monument that marks the historical event known as Holodomor (Hladomor). But what is Holodomor and what crime does this monument even symbolize?
At the end of World War I Ukraine was an independent state, but it was governed by the Soviet Union in 1919 "sucked" into the community of Soviet states. Ukrainians, who then considered themselves a Central European nation like Poland, not an Eastern European like the Russians, were trying to restore Ukraine's independence.
Not wanting to lose control of Europe's main grain, Stalin in 1932 resorted to one of the most heinous forms of terror against a nation. In the process of nationalization, he took the grainy land from Ukrainian h, and all its yields, creating artificial hunger. The goal was to "teach Ukrainians" so that they would no longer oppose official Moscow. Thus, the nation that produced the most wheat in Europe was left without a crumb of bread. The peak of the Holodomor was in the spring of 1933. In Ukraine, 17 people starved to death every minute, over 1000 every hour, and almost 24500 every day! People were literally starving to death on the streets.
In the emptied Ukrainian villages Stalin settled the Russian population.
During the next census, there was a large population shortage.
Therefore, the Soviet government abolished the census, destroyed the census documentation, and the censusers were shot or sent to gulag, to completely hide the truth.
It was Holodomor during 1932-1933 hunger killed between seven and ten million people, more than Jews in World War II. Their toxic gas was hunger. Their Hitler was Stalin. Their holocaust was Gladomor. For them fascist Berlin was Soviet Moscow, and their concentration camp was the Soviet Union. Today, 28 countries of the world classify the Holodomor as a genocide, and you could not teach about it in school because almost all evidence has been destroyed, and the victim was silenced for decades and had no say until recently.
The Holodomor may have temporarily broken the Ukrainian resistance, but it made the desire for Ukraine's independence from Russia eternal.

Looks like the war of movement and smaller unit actions is coming to a close and the main game is about to commence as the Russians learned their lesson that a quick thinly spread attack could not succeed. The really annoying thing is they can just jump back over the Belarus and Russian border to rest, reorganise and move troops in complete safety. The Ukrainians need defensive weapons more than ever in the next couple of weeks. The attackers always have to seriously outnumber defenders and always suffer more casualties, the Russians have both factors in their operations.
The best hope for Ukraine is if they can inflict so much damage upon the Russians they stop the attack. That is only half the problem because once the battle reverses to reclaim the occupied territory the Ukrainians then become the attackers with all the increased losses. The West has to ensure Ukraine has such a good supply of modern weapons they can continue until such time as the Russian economy (and hopefully but not likely, their government) collapses from sanctions.
It is going to get worse before it gets better.
Hang in there Dima.

Forty-fourth day of the Ukrainian people's war for freedom against the russian fascists. Yesterday I found out that my neighbour died in the war. He was a great guy who helped people in peacetime and became a real hero in the war, and there are thousands of such Ukrainian heroes. At the same time, the russian bastards brought mobile crematoria to the long-suffering city of Mariupol to burn the civilians they killed and hide the traces of their crimes. The russian bastards are concentrating their main forces in eastern Ukraine to launch a massive offensive. Unfortunately we still haven't received a single plane or tank from our Western partners! To understand what the world is like right now, take a look at this map. It turns out that there are many countries in the world that openly support the russian fascists and those who sympathize with the russian bastards. A lot of neutral countries. But most importantly, Ukrainians already know exactly who the real friends are and who are only "concerned". Thank you to all friends, to all those who care about the pain of my people. And to all those who support russian fascists - "Catch up with the russian warship!!!".
Glory to Ukraine!
And these are the losses of the russian bastards on day 44 of the war!

Forty-fifth day of Ukraine's war with fascist russia. Yesterday morning the russian fascists carried out another act of terrorism. This time a russian fascist rocket hit the railway station in Kramotorsk, where there were more than 4,000 women and children who wanted to go to safety. As a result, 52 people were killed, including 6 children, and more than 200 people were wounded (most had their arms and legs blown off). This act shows once again that we are at war with fascists who want to destroy my people. But no matter what, we will hold out, our army is more motivated than ever to destroy the enemy, and the civilians help it in any way they can! Thank you to all the caring people around the world who support my country! Glory to Ukraine!
And these are the losses of russian fascists on the morning of April 9!
