An act of terror was conducted today by the Russians in my native city of Kharkiv. Three people are dead and 10 are wounded.
Kharkiv, the second largest city in Ukraine and the country’s former capital, has the great misfortune of being located right at the border with Russia. The people of Kharkiv are increasingly worried that the city will be the next target of the Russian invasion.
A few days ago, a ceasefire was signed in Minsk between the sides in this war. Ukraine fulfilled its promise to uphold the ceasefire. Russia used the ceasefire to ramp up the invasion and raze to the ground the Ukrainian city of Debaltseve.
For the past 3 days, Russians have been transferring enormous quantities of weapons and huge numbers of soldiers into Ukraine. There is every indication that the next wave of invasion is about to start.
Based on the way Russians conduct their military operations in Ukraine, their only goal is to destroy as many peaceful cities and towns as possible. They choose a peaceful village or town and then shell it until there’s nothing left. They are not making any demands or showing any willingness to stop the invasion if any conditions are met.
