Unafraid

In the Ukrainian city of Kherson that has been occupied by Russian troops, crowds of people are coming out to protest the invasion. “We are not afraid!” they chant.

This is in the village of Novopskov:

People on the news call Novopskov “a city” but the population was about 8,000 before the war. You can imagine what it is now. It looks like everybody who’s left in the village has come out.

In the meantime, a few minutes ago, we got news that a Chechen batallion took control of a psychiatric hospital in Borodyanka and is holding the patients hostage. Again, very typical. Chechen troops specialize in population intimidation tactics where they take little kids, moms with newborn babies, or ill people hostage.
