Russian forces have continued to strike Odessa- I don’t think Russia struck the church in Odessa- It seems it was air defense that failed. If a missile would have struck the Orthodox Church it would have been flattened. Completely. And there would have been a hole in the ground. At least that’s my thinking.
Western media is acknowledging that the “counter offensive” is going badly. Ukraine is sustaining real human losses. I’ve heard the number 25,000 to 26,000 dead in this latest. Considering the numbers of those killed have already ranged between 300-350,000. The additional dead push this number ever higher. This is a tragedy. That never had to occur. Sigh.. Stick to already signed agreements (Minsk)- Follow through on the ones that were nearly completed in March 2022. Getting them signed and sticking to them. But, no… The US would have none of it. They are happy to use the Ukrainians. And Zelensky is happy to see them used.
And now we may be looking at Belarus and Poland squaring off in western Ukraine.
As always share some thoughts..
