This is not a conflict or an aggression or an incursion. Russians and Belorussians brought war to my home. People whom you came here to “save” are switching from speaking Russian to Ukrainian, they are sleeping in basements or subway stations, and waking up to sirens and explosions. You are destroying their homes with rockets and missiles, you are killing their friends and relatives, you are terrifying their children.
You are not welcome here, you are not needed here, and if you keep this up, you will go back home in a body bag. It seems that violence is the only language you understand.
Our allies need to stop playing around with their “sanctions”, it’s time to get serious. Close both Russians and Belorussians within their borders with no way out, seize and freeze everything they own, and stop embarrassing yourselves. Otherwise they will come for you too!
On the first photo you can see the line of people joining the army in one of Ukrainian cities, on the second – remains of Russian vehicles after our warm welcome.
