Dear readers! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using the chanсe - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you.)  If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation

    You also deserve a medal for courage, little one. Слава Володимир Гнатюк і його сім’ї, особливо його дочка. (Please forgive my poor Ukrainian).

    I cry for the children. Another lose of life because a mad man decides he wants to make your country suffer. Breaks my heart. I hope Putin and his regime will pay for this in prison for life.

    As Lincoln said; “They gave their last full measure of devotion.”
    Small comfort young lady but I think he died in the hopes of giving you a chance at something better.
    Nothing could be more noble.
    And that Gentlemen and ladies is why we are here.
    Fighting the Information Wars on behalf of those are to busy struggling to survive in harsh times.
    It may not be our war but it is most definitely our fight!
    Because she deserves more than the Russian Keptocracy!
