“I am just utterly sick of seeing western leaders say that Russia WILL pay a heavy price for it’s war. When does this mystical, unspecified moment in the future come? How many deaths and missiles later?” Ukrainian journalist Anastasiia Lapatina
As I watch the death count rise in Ukraine, I’m trying to do whatever I can do spread the word in support of Ukraine.
The main thing I am doing is sharing news from there that I see on social media posted from Ukrainian government officials and Ukrainian press.
A couple sources I am following on Twitter and the GoFundMe link for the Kyiv Independent:
I also think we have to call out all of the Republican politicians supporting Russia and this invasion. Just yesterday the former president spoke in support of Russia, at a fundraiser attended by Senate candidates from Georgia, Nevada and North Carolina. The Republicans supporting Russia are no surprise, and are playing right into the Russian playbook.
Meanwhile, I keep thinking of Ukrainians as they face brutality and an attempt to rip their freedom away.
