Ukrainians will never give up. Though they are without power , water and food they are valiantly restoring power and fighting. Putin thought overwhelming the skies would crack Ukrainian defenses. It hasn’t. The Ukrainians fight because they must.
If COP 27 is an example of World leadership, Ukraine and the World are in trouble. Clearly our leaders have not gotten enough relationship training to come together, talk , listen and formulate a path toward Carbon reductions. Would terminating a War be equally difficult?
Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, the area around the Black Sea port of Odesa and more than a dozen other regions are grappling with power shortages following relentless Russian attacks on energy infrastructure, Volodymyr Zelenskiy has said.

Kyiv is by far the largest city in Ukraine, with an estimated population of about 3 million, with up to 2 million more in the Kyiv region. Odesa, the focal point of Ukraine’s agriculture exports, is the third most populous city, with about 1 million.
