18th December 2022: War rages in Ukraine. There is no time for Christmas, just sadness, loss of lives, injured and wounded. Russia will stand accountable at the Hague, but first Ukraine needs military support from the West. NATO song below empowering and lovely to listen to.

MSNBC. NICOLLE WALLACE. 16 Dec 22. Ukraine must knock out the Russian Army. Next step is to provide OFFENSIVE military technology. Armed Drones. ATACMS long range missiles. M1 tanks.

Goodnight #Ukraine. When you next snuggle down to go to sleep in your warm bed, spare a thought for Ukrainian soldiers holding the line. Their creature comforts are a little more basic.

“You raised a worthy son. Congratulations” Russian Army representatives tell a mother in Bashkortostan that her son has been killed in battle against the Ukrainian Army. Russia continues to throw ethnic minorities into the meat grinder.
