From the moment Russia decided to enter Ukraine and destroy what was beautiful, what was originally standing tall – the parks, the art structures, the ego of a new and small coffee stall owner, to the eagerness of a kid to know the world is now dead.
Several news stories have already shocked the whole world. And this brave new generation had their legs numb on how their era could face almost everything at the same time. The period of quarantine, a world-ending pandemic and now the chances of another World War.
It’s not just the war that’s affecting the brains and emotions, but the stories that are hidden under the debris post bombing. The hands which held crayons, now have uncertainty of life.
A few tweets have surfaced describing the spine-chilling views that are being experienced in war-hit Ukraine.
“My son is almost 6. His mother’s country of birth bombs his fathers,” read the tweet of Alexander Kolyandr. Meanwhile, Luke Harding tweeted, “Our basement in Kyiv is now filling up with families with small children. The kids are holding coloring books. It’s heartbreaking.”
And it’s not just twitter that is filled with saddening stories of humanity, but the words of Marta Shokalo, a civilian of Ukraine who described it to BBC News, made readers question how it can be so normal to destroy everything and to strike people, humans, with the sword of undeniability of incidents.
Shokalo’s post read, “I dressed my 10 year old son. We had breakfast, sitting as far from the windows as we could, but he was so scared he vomited.”
On the other hand, Russian civilians have taken to the streets protesting against the war crime that is being done by their country.
With so much going on, one of the most critical sites in the whole country of Ukraine, The Chernobyl has now also been captured by Russians, disturbing the stability of the radioactive material in and around the site of the incident.
The latest news reveals that Russian troops have captured Melitopol. This city which is in the southeastern Zaporizhzhya region of Ukraine.
Ukraine’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Dmytro Kuleba shared a picture of Kyiv, and requested the world to “isolate Russia”.
“Kyiv, our splendid, peaceful city, survived another night under attacks by Russian ground forces, missiles. One of them has hit a residential apartment in Kyiv. I demand the world: fully isolate Russia, expel ambassadors, oil embargo, ruin its economy. Stop Russian war criminals!” his post read.
With this, it is also being heard that the on-ground fight has also started in several sites. And the men who fall between the age group 18 and 60 are not allowed to leave Ukraine as they are to be deployed in the military and armed forces.
The dust hasn’t settled and the screams won’t stop, just like those curses by a lady who just lost her whole family, and a kid seeking his parents and not answers under the rubbles of concrete.
May the good be with Ukraine. Because god certainly isn’t!
