Putin Continues To Lose Fight Against Ukraine Even On 2 Year Anniversary Of Attacks

 February 24, 2024

Ukrainians across the nation paused on this somber occasion, reflecting on the immense human cost of Russia's invasion, with international support shining a faint light of hope amidst the darkness.

Since the conflict's inception in 2022, the toll on Ukraine has been devastating, with estimates suggesting approximately 30,000 Ukrainian soldiers and 10,000 civilians have lost their lives. The Lychakiv Cemetery in Lviv became a focal point for commemoration, hosting a poignant 'rays of remembrance' event that projected beams of light into the sky — a symbolic gesture honoring those who fell in the fight against the invasion. In a display of continued international solidarity, allies like the United Kingdom have stepped forward with renewed commitments to support Ukraine. UK Defence Secretary Grant Shapps's announcement of a nearly £250 million investment for new artillery shells symbolizes a potent gesture of unwavering support for Ukraine's resistance.

Grant Shapps articulated the steadfast resolve that characterizes Ukraine's fight and the crucial role of international backing, "Against all odds, the armed forces of Ukraine have pushed back the Russian invaders... But they cannot win this fight without the support of the international community - and that's why we continue to do what it takes to ensure Ukraine can continue to fight towards victory."

A significant blow to Russian surveillance capabilities

Amidst the sobering commemorations, a significant operational achievement was claimed by the Ukrainian forces. The reported destruction of a Russian A-50 surveillance aircraft marks a notable setback for Russian military capabilities. Social media platforms buzzed with visuals of the incident, underscoring Ukraine's resiliency and strategic prowess on the battlefield, despite the continuing tragedy of the conflict, DailyMail reported.

The downing of the A-50, an asset critical to Russia's military strategy due to its early warning and control capabilities, underlines the challenges facing Russian forces. Before this incident, Russia purportedly possessed only eight such aircraft, indicating the potential impact of this loss on their aerial surveillance efficacy.

International stance against Russian aggression

The international community's response to the ongoing conflict has been characterized by a mixture of condemnation and support for Ukraine. Fresh sanctions against Russia and commitments from countries like the United Kingdom underscore the global rejection of the invasion and the solidarity with Ukraine's fight for sovereignty and peace.

Foreign Secretary Lord Cameron, during his address to the United Nations General Assembly, made poignant observations on the nature of the conflict. He dismissed the Russian government's portrayal of the situation, questioning the integrity behind their justification for such profound human suffering, "My first visit as Foreign Secretary was to Ukraine... His (Putin's) government claims this is a battle between brothers. What twisted form of brotherhood is this for which so many lives must be ruined?"

The narrative of international involvement, from imposing sanctions to providing military support, paints a complex picture of global diplomacy and solidarity. Countries around the world continue to navigate the delicate balance between supporting Ukraine and preventing further escalation in an already volatile situation.

The commitment to Ukraine's cause is not just about military or financial aid; it's a broader reflection of values and the collective defense of sovereignty and democracy in the face of unwarranted aggression. As Ukraine continues its struggle, the global community's role remains crucial in shaping the outcome and future of this war-torn nation.


As we mark the second anniversary of a conflict that has irrevocably altered countless lives, our thoughts turn to those who have suffered and continue to suffer due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The collective spirit of Ukraine, emboldened by international support and strategic victories, offers a glimmer of hope amidst the persistent shadows of war.

From the somber memorials in Lviv to the significant military actions on the battlefield and the international diplomatic arena, the story of Ukraine's resilience and the world's response narrates a tale of unity, defiance, and the unyielding pursuit of peace.

  1. How does 230 million anythings compare to the over 60 billion dollars the democrats want to send to Ukraine? Not so much. Are we alone in this? It would look like Europe, that doesn't even pay their commitment to NATO, would be leading from in front, not behind,seeing how its their front yard.
