If you do nothing else today, watch this video. You won’t regret it.

A few excerpts from President Zelensky speaking in the video:
On February 24, Russia launched an offensive, treading on the same rake.
Every occupier who comes to our land treads on it.
We have been through different wars.
But they all had the same final.
Our land was sown with bullets and shells.
But no enemy was able to take root here.
Enemy chariots and tanks drove through our fields, but it did not bear fruit.
Enemy arrows and missiles flew in our skies, but no one will be able to overshadow our blue sky.
There are no shackles that can bind our free spirit.
There is no occupier who can take root in our free land.
There is no invader who can rule over our free people.
Sooner or later we win.
We win because this is our land.
We are fighting for the Homeland.
We have never fought against anyone, we always fight for ourselves.
For our freedom. For our independence.
So the victory of our ancestors was not in vain.
They fought for freedom for us and won.
We are fighting for freedom for our children
and therefore we will win.
