Today’s War News

That’s how my morning was: the first thing I saw on my phone was, “Soledar is taken by Russians.” Then – “According to Ukraine, the fight is still going on.” And then the news about the tanks. I am so hopeful that this will finally happen – that the tank will reach the front. If it takes the Soledar standoff to make it a reality, I would say it was not for nothing. At least something is coming.

Since the day Biden announced that we are giving tanks to Ukraine, I kept asking Boris how the tanks would get to Ukraine and how long it could take. But it’s not even a question of “how long,” because I do not think something happened since they were promised.

That’s where I am, between hope and despair. And meanwhile, everything in my life is going great. So good, that even with my boundless optimism, I am starting to worry about how long the universe is going to treat me so well. I thank the universe for everything every day, grateful that I am able to support so many people and causes, but how much I wish I would not have to support that cause!

  1. I do not know how long it will take for Ukraine to take delivery of the equipment but it might not be long as there is an inventory already in Europe. In any case, it’s hard to imagine the quantities promised making much of a difference except as an advance guard to a steady stream of purchases. This may go on for a long time.

  2. Why do you think these quantities won’t make a difference? With all the similarities, this front size is way smaller than the WWII Soviet/German front.
