Russia’s constant strikes on Ukraine have resulted in severe environmental damage. It is important to inform the Russians that they will have to pay for their actions. Not only for mining territories, striking objects, but also for killing people and abducting children. Future generations will suffer the consequences and will go down in history as descendants of Russian terrorists who committed genocide against the Ukrainian people.
Despite this grim news, there are still inspiring stories to be told. One of them is about 10-year-old Briton Milan Kumar, who devotes most of his time and energy to helping young people have a safe place to call home. As an #iwill Young Ambassador, Milan has raised thousands of pounds for charity and slept outside to raise awareness about homelessness.
White House national security council spokesperson John Kirby announced that the US has estimated more than 20,000 Russian soldiers were killed and over 80,000 were injured in just five months of fighting in Ukraine. Half of those deaths were from the Wagner mercenary group, rather than the Russian military. It is alarming to know that the group recruits heavily in prisons and offers convicts an amnesty if they survive six months on the frontlines.
Ukrainian forces are still holding out in a corner of Bakhmut, and the Ukrainian forces are still countering against Russians. On Tuesday, Ukrainian forces shelled a village in the Russian Bryansk region bordering Ukraine, according to Governor Alexander Bogomaz, but there is no verification of the report. Russia’s invasion of the region has caused many pro-Ukrainian sabotage groups, with multiple attacks being carried out in the last 14 months.
The losses of Russian soldiers are an acceleration in casualties from the first days of the war and overshadow some of the bloodiest allied battles of the Second World War.
In summary, Russia’s environmental damage in Ukraine is a severe issue, and the Russians must be held accountable for their actions. Nevertheless, Milan Kumar’s charitable efforts are an inspiring example of how we can all make a change and make a difference. Also, the death and injuries of Russian soldiers due to the Ukrainian conflict highlights how war is always a tragedy that should be avoided whenever possible.
