In recent weeks we have written about fellow-journalist Tetyana Chornovol, and the death of her husband, Nikolai Berezovoi, who was a commander with the Ukrainian Azov battalion. The Azov unit is a highly dedicated group of skilled volunteers who deeply love their country and are willing to defend Ukraine at all costs.
Tetyana has joined the battalion that her late beloved husband led and she is stationed in Mariupol, where the Azov unit is ready to defend the city in case the cease-fire is violated. We are concerned that the war is not over; and so are asking for well-wishes, thoughts, and prayers for her safety, and the safety of her fellow soldiers.
This war is so senseless and so unnecessary and we also ask our readers to offer the same thoughts and prayers for the young Russian men who are sent to fight (and if you doubt–yes, active Russian troops have been in Ukraine for some time, and are still there).
