“Putin may destroy us, but we will never surrender”


“My title is Olga Tarnovska and I dwell within the city of Vishgorod, just a few kilometers from kyiv. I’ve determined to not go away Ukraine as a result of I believe I might be helpful from my nation and in addition as a result of I’ve my family members right here, like my mom, who sleeps each night time in city shelters. There’s one other a part of the household that has left Ukraine and is now scattered all through Europe. That offers me numerous peace of thoughts as a result of no less than I do know that part of our household will be capable of survive.

As we speak’s state of affairs in my metropolis, Vishgorod, a city north of the capital is sort of tense. At night time there have been preventing very near my home. From my window I’ve seen the missiles. Russian troopers have tried to go checkpoints to get nearer to Kyiv in our space, very near my city. Within the morning there was motion within the streets as a result of individuals have gone out to purchase and withdraw cash from the financial institution. Nervousness is noticeable. We don’t know what is going to occur or how lengthy it’ll final. At three within the afternoon I noticed that there have been not queues within the shops. Some days I am going out to search for provisions and different days I’ve needed to keep at house as a result of there was fixed shelling.

My metropolis is a strategic level because it homes a hydroelectric energy station positioned on the financial institution of the Dnieper River. Earlier than the invasion of the Russian troops we had pointers on the best way to act in case of battle. There’s additionally an anti-aircraft system defending the plant enclosure. They bombed us so much within the first days of the army incursion as a result of they needed to destroy the vitality set up, however the defensive methods and the 2 bridges that we’ve close to our city had been blown up.

My father, 71 years previous, has mobilized to volunteer to enlist, however they didn’t catch him as a result of he was too previous. Nevertheless, the opposite day a close-by army base was bombed, and he determined to hitch others to assist, so that they took up arms and went with the militias. He spent virtually every week with out showing at house, sleeping on the barricades. When he returned, he determined to hitch the native brigade. The opposite night time he needed to do guard responsibility and the town hospital was patrolled. My 21-year-old nephew is in a army coaching middle, as a volunteer. There are various mobilized individuals however there aren’t any weapons to ship to everybody. So individuals begin making cocktails molotovs do-it-yourself and plenty of have drawn their rifles. There are 5 million rifles in Ukraine, with permits, and plenty of of them at the moment are in uncontrolled circulation due to the battle.

At this level, I don’t suppose Russia can conquer all of Ukraine and put a puppet authorities in kyiv. This army operation Vladimir Putin it has already did not the purpose that not even they know what to do with Ukraine. The strategic and tactical state of affairs of the entrance line has modified so much. The Russian troops are struggling brutal losses, which aren’t reported within the media, not even within the worldwide channels. It’s a pity, as a result of on this manner the Russian individuals may know a bit higher the reality of what’s taking place in my nation. Russia is within the fingers of an individual who’s uncontrolled and has grow to be a hazard not just for Ukraine if not for the remainder of European nations.

Vladimir Putin It will likely be in a position to destroy Ukraine nevertheless it won’t conquer it and we won’t capitulate, that’s not going to occur. It pains us to see the cities of Mariupol and Kherson, that are being riddled with bullets, cities the place they’re executing a genocide towards the civilian inhabitants. It additionally hurts us that Europe doesn’t need to enter with its troops to assist us or, no less than, declare a no-fly zone to have the ability to defend ourselves from air assaults and regroup our forces to liberate these cities from the enemy. So someway I really feel deserted. We admire all the assistance, however it’s inadequate to struggle a monster.”
