Real stories from Ukraine :
« on: April 30, 2022, 11:48:41 AM »
This is about a 14 year old girl in Kharkiv, Kira S.
She was injured on the 15th of April due to indiscriminate shelling of a residential area of Kharkiv by the Russians.
Kira has extensive shrapnel injuries to her internal organs and is in intensive care following several rounds of surgery to repair her liver, duodenum and intestines.
She has shrapnel lodged very close to her spine which is causing paralysis. She cannot be moved due to the severity of her injuries.

Kira was a promising young gymnast. It is unlikely she will ever resume her gymnastics career if she survives.

Real people, real stories.

Two months ago I went to Nikolayev with the Doctors without Borders (MSF). I accompanied them as an interpreter. We intended to visit Oncology Hospital 2 at 18 Nikolayevskaya Street. No sooner had we parked our van across from the hospital garage and come up to the gate than it started to bang loudly. I did not realize at once it was shelling. In Odessa we are used to air defense banging in the sky, but this time it was much louder and closer. We took cover in the garage, in the pit. I coud see a flash a hundred meters away at the 5th floor level next to a residential building.

When we got out, our van was pierced with shrapnel all over. Like a lot of cars in the area. Many windows were broken, loud hissing could be heard from a gas pipe nearby.

Later I learned that it was cluster bombs from occupied Herson. Had we arrived just 5 minutes later I would have possibly been killed or wounded. Some citizens of Nikolayev were then indeed. Cluster bombs are meant to kill people rather than destroy objects. I can assure that the area was purely residential, only aparment blocks and kindergartens around. No military equipment, no troops. The object we tried to visit was an active hospital still used to its purpose. The MSF would not have simply tried to visit it otherwise as they are doctors and if it had been a military base they would have had no reason to go there. They are impartial and refuse weapons.

This is just one small example of THOUSANDS when the Russian Nazis deliberately kill civilians and destroy civilian infrastructure. It is no mistake, they do it on purpose because their aim is to completely wipe out Ukraine with all its people, their language, culture and state, and just annex the soil. This is what they did to Mariupol, a city of once half a million people totally erased (there is not a single building that was not hit), where putrid smell is all around now from the corpses of the people buried in the debris. But out of all those thousands here is one that is my own experience that I can fully confirm. This is not propaganda, a journalist report, rumors, a story from a friend or neighbor, but something first-hand.

Thanks for this 'on the spot' report.
A beautiful woman is pleasant to look at, but it is easier to live with a pleasant acting one.

this all happened before, over 300 years ago!!!
"The West", was at war with Russia
 Charles XII of Sweeden, was planning on invading Moscow, but due to the effects of a "scorched earth" policy used by Russia, he had to call it off!
so instead of Moscow, the Swedish army decided to go and camp in Ukraine
they enlisted the help of Ivan Mazepa, a top Ukrainian leader, who learned he was to be replaced by Tsar Peter I , yes THAT Peter!  by a Russian puppet figure to lead Ukraine a higly corrupt and crooked Prince Aleksander Danilovich Menshikov

this lead to the battle of Poltava
which was fought not far from where the war is TODAY!!
weird, huh?

so this struggle of the Russian ruling elite and the destiny of Ukraine is hundreds of years old!
and y'all think it's gonna end, "real soon now"?
LOL!!

American Reaper drones armed with hellfire missiles are on their way to Ukraine
a very high probability that USA will operate them at least part of the time
imagine the benefit they gain by getting data of hellfire missiles against T-72 tanks
and guaranteed that there will NEVER be a single US casualty

Iíve seen a YouTube video about this incident.

Johnny and friend dine at Pervak restaurant in his latest vlog.   
Good memories for those of us who ate there many years ago.   
Doesn't look much different than 2002.
She tells her story of a month's occupation in Kherson.
Her husband is in the military.
