Today, 24th February, marks one year since Russian launched its brutal and unprovoked attack on Ukraine. The three-day campaign envisaged by Vladimir Putin has stretched to 365 days of brave resistance by the Ukrainian armed forces, but at the cost of thousands of innocent Ukrainian lives. Today let us remember the sacrifice of our Ukrainian brothers and sisters, and pray that their struggle will soon result in a resounding victory! Let us not forget that in reality Ukraine is fighting not only for its own survival as an independent nation, but also for the Baltic States and other potential Russian targets. Especially today, let us thank the Ukrainians for their sacrifice! Slava Ukraini!
