Putin prepares to annex 4 provinces in Ukraine today, Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk and Luhansk. Russian Sam 300 missiles fired on a humanitarian corridor of cars, approaching a Russian checkpoint, murdering civilians outside Zaporizhzhia. This was a known established route for aide and relief, if Ukrainians were “willing” to become Russian citizens, why bomb this known convoy? Fierce fighting continues in the Luthansk region, in spite of the Referendums. Ukraine’s counteroffensive is not stopping, no matter what Putin declares. As predicted, Russia’s new recruits have been sent to the front lines and many are already in retreat and surrounded. The Ukrainians are not giving up territory and seek to turn Putin’s initial victory into defeat.

TheVoiceOfJoyce News is not coming fast enough on Zelensky’s counteroffensive. Are new Ukrainian plans and preparations, made to liberate Ukrainian citizens trapped in the 4 regions, awaiting annexation by Putin? What then? Will Putin continue to use Ukrainians as human shields? In Putin’s war, everyone but him, is expendable. Prior to the sham Referendums, the Nord Stream pipeline linking Russia to Europe, was bombed, leaving plumes of methane gas in the Baltic Sea, further deteriorating our climate’ s ability to mitigate Climate extremes . Sabotage by Russia is assumed and must be verified. Russian citizens are still leaving Russia for other Countries to avoid conscription. And so we wait, wondering how Zelensky can continue to out smart Putin. L’Shana Tova

TheVoiceOfJoyce Day 213 and there’s activities on the Finnish border, as young Russians escape the Russian draft. Now that white collar job holders are exempt from the draft, Putin is targeting the poor and hopes to conscript young Ukrainian men, from the 4 regions holding sham Referendums. Ukraine has no choice, they must disrupt the balloting process and continue their counteroffensive as quickly as possible. In Putin’s mind, the Referendums, at gun point, make the 4 territories Russian territory, in need of defenses. That’s his delusion, the reality, Ukraine is winning the Counteroffensive. They must be prepared to push through all Russian territory and have a firm control of their Country, before pushing Russians back to Russia. Putin must be desperate for cash, if he’s asking to let Russian fertilizer sales resume. These sales should be conditional on leaving Ukraine, stopping the Referendums and agreeing to a Ceasefire. The War continues.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Putin may be losing the War. However, Putin continues to fire missiles indiscriminately at civilian targets, hospitals, and infrastructure. The Russian soldier is barbaric, committing war crimes undeterred by Military Leadership. Putin is not listening to Modi or Xi, will he listen to Erdogan? The UN? When the Nations convene next week, discuss famine and the rise in CO2 Emissions Globally, exacerbating our Climate crisis. Ukraine has shipped 3.7 million tons of grain, out of the original 20 million. Famine is increasing in Africa, while they wait for Ukrainian grain. Putin’s War is prolonging the suffering of many. The UN should actively become a broker for a just peace. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian power plant is working at minimal capacity in order to prevent core meltdown. Why isn’t the area demilitarized, yet. Putin says he’s only interested in Donbas. Why isn’t he evacuating all other areas in Ukraine, now?
