A year later, tribute to the Ukrainians

One year later, tribute to Ukrainians


A year ago, Russian troops entered Ukraine, the first step in rebuilding the Russian Empire.

This is Vladimir Putin himself who affirms it, since he wants Russia to regain its historical territories.

However, Russia is already the largest country in the world. Its area extends over almost twice that of Canada.

Eastern Europe, Central Asia and even, theoretically, Alaska are therefore in Putin's sights.

To raise this possibility a year ago would have been received as petty anti-Russian propaganda.

However, we have to face the facts: this ambition of reconquest was clearly expressed by Putin.

Ukrainian roadblock

The Ukrainians are making him dam. At an unbelievable cost.

More than 10 million Ukrainians have fled their country, about 25% of the population.

The number of Ukrainian soldiers killed, wounded or missing is secret. But it is presumably similar to that of the decimated Russian soldiers, almost 200,000.

The war in Ukraine weighs heavily on the civilians.

But the Ukrainians are holding out.

Against all odds, not only did they resist the invader, but they also regained part of the territories that the Russians had conquered.

Fatherland and freedom

Why are they holding up? Putin responds to this question that they are overwhelmed by American propaganda. This is false.

The reason for their resistance can be summed up in two words: homeland and freedom.

They refuse to return to the yoke of Russia. A power that left memories of famine and terror during the years it controlled Ukraine.

Ukrainians have chosen the path of freedom, a path repugnant to dictators like Putin.

Ukrainians know what losing your freedom means. For them, democracy is an armed fight.

A fight that holds 80% of the Russian ground forces in check.

A fight that is worth more than the billions we send them.
