We’ve seen how little the leaders of the world are willing to stop Putin’s invasion. They are more than willing to complain. But stick their necks out to save lives? Nope! Ukraine has been left to the wolves, as Russian forces bombard their cities with missile strikes.
But Ukraine isn’t going to let Russia walk all over it. The president, while blasting world leaders for doing nothing, is taking efforts to defend his land. And, in a moment that mirrors our own nation’s tenacious history, he is calling on his people to fight.
From NOQ Report:
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced this morning that his government will give weapons to any citizens who are willing to fight.
“We will give weapons to anyone who wants to defend the country. Be ready to support Ukraine in the squares of our cities.” he Tweeted.
Ukraine is taking a page out of the American Revolution and enlisting regular citizens to fight. President Zelenskyy is offering weapons to any citizen ready to fight Russia. He warned them that they need to be ready to fight “in the squares of our cities.” Meaning, he’s not pretending that this problem will go away overnight.
Russia intends to take Ukraine by force. Putin wants the country, claiming it is his by right. The people of Ukraine, if they want to remain free, will have to risk their lives to defend their country. It’s sad that it’s come to this—but it shows the passion of this people.
Zelenskyy shouldn’t have to ask everyday folks to fight. He should have the support of his allies. But it seems the United States, NATO, and other groups are only offering words and soft sanctions. Meanwhile, Putin is capturing airports and bombing cities.
We can’t be sure just how effective this civilian militia will be. But it’s possible Russian forces have underestimated Ukraine’s resolve. Let’s hope it will be enough to win the day.
- Ukraine’s president is offering weapons to any citizen who will fight.
- This comes as world leaders do little in light of the invasion.
- Putin has not been deterred by sanctions or words.
