Outnumbered & outgunned, Ukraine appeared to have little chance against a giant like Russia, that invaded on Feb 24th. Many even claimed Ukraine would fall in ‘3 days.’ But none of that happened. Let’s take a look back at 2022 ‘ups’ for Ukraine that proved it’s pretty kick-ass.

For how long can Russia afford Putin? He is the greatest threat not only to Russia’s material well-being and freedom but also to its sovereignty & territorial integrity. No Russian leader could be worse than Putin. (Prigozhin & Kadyrov are only dummies created by Putin.)
Putin’s New Year greeting is really appalling. He stands in front of 19 petrified actors in military uniforms for 9 minutes. His speech is aggressive, militant & backward-looking with sentimental imperialism. No facts, no future. He looks ready to weep
