Updates on Ukraine
I’m reading the bulk of my news these days from my 1440 Daily Digest, an online news service with a goal to be impartial and comprehensive. The news of Russia attacking Ukraine is horrible. Good news headlines are still hard to find, but the following articles picked up by 1440 include balance, for example:
Yesterday, I read: Ukraine is holding their capital of Kyiv….. Reports suggest Ukrainian resistance was greater than anticipated by Russian officials. As of Monday morning, “Ukraine and Russian delegations were set to hold talks at the Belarusian border. See updates here.” President Volodymyr Zelensky declined evacuation offers… rallying troops by joining forces on the ground in Kyiv.
Today’s news from 1440 include that Ukrainian and Russian delegations met yesterday and both sides reportedly agreed to continue talks. Countries and businesses around the world are implementing sanctions, and boundaries to let Russia know the attacks are unacceptable.
Two Ukranian Doctors
Ukrainian doctors Kateryna and Oleksander decided to stay in their country and help. Oleksander has enlisted with the army and Kateryna is helping at the local hospital. She talks about treating Russian soldiers in the following video. I hesitated to share this video, because there’s a fair amount of sadness and frustration. Oleksander finds is hard to speak due to the loss of his friends. But I felt compelled to share it anyway, because I found it moving and inspiring. If you want to skip some of the sadness, you can skip to about three minutes.
