Update: Alex Shchukin and the Fight In Ukraine
Alex Shchukin continues to update the pole world about the fight he faces in Ukraine. The death toll has risen to at least 67 and the fight only gets worse as snipers have now been positioned on roofs. Alex’s latest status, “Ukrainian president is going down. But being a monster he tries to take as many lives with him as he can. Today the snipers started shooting people from the roofs. Officially 67 deaths are proclaimed, but there are more, as it’s difficult to save the bodies. Snipers shoot a person, then shoot everybody who tries to help, including medics and volunteers with red crosses. Even during WWII the Red Cross was protection against any attacks. All people of Ukraine try to help – transporting the wounded, blocking with their bodies trains with military forces, giving blood and money, burning the car wheels to block the view for snipers with black smoke. But I went home, as the situation spreads all over the city. Criminal president has called all the criminals from around the country. They gave them weapons, protected them with police, payed them money. Now government is running away, and all the criminals are left alone around the city. They occupy schools and even kindergartens, attacking people and cars on the streets…” To get a better understanding of what’s happened in Kiev and other Ukrainian cities in the last 36 hours, click here.
