    Kadyrov: One of the brightest results of the fighters of the Akhmat special forces, achieved jointly with the military personnel of the LPR, is the capture of the Zarya chemical plant. Its industrial zone is several kilometers long and wide.

    1:15 Muscovite army has reached Crimea in 1738 for the first time, but managed to occupy the peninsula only on 1776, meaning it was not historical Muscovite whatsoever. On the other hand, Crimea was historical Ruthenian (Ukrainian) and Severian (Ukrainian) at least 795 years before that, until 988 AD. Moreover, Ukrainians (Antae) lived in Crimea since the 5th century AD as the written sources and archaeology clearly proves.

    The Treasury and State Department identified former Ukraine officials Konstantin Kulyk, Oleksandr Onyshchenko, Andriy Telizhenko and Oleksandr Dubinsky — a current member of the Ukrainian parliament — as part of a "coordinated" effort to spread "unsubstantiated allegations involving a U.S. political candidate."

    Sales of Kit Kat have been suspended in Russia and this will determine the result of the war. To the best of my knowledge a non-Kit Kat country has never beaten a Kit Kat country in a war!

    that Ukrainian that got off that plane was old enough to be in a damn uniform and fighting for his country to drive the Russians out instead of settling in another country
  • Leo Sath
    The better the Ukrainians do against Russia, the better for Europe and all Western countries.. Give them 🇺🇦 MORE weapons Fast
  • Frank East
    Ukraine continues to defend democracy, and it is right that Canada supports them. We must do more to provide them with the tools to defend themselves.
  • Ese soldado ruso es inocente. El que la rego fue el señor que andaba paseando en bicicleta en zona de combate, que falta de criterio.
