TheVoiceOfJoyce It’s almost impossible to believe, Putin now considers Russia on a War footing and has mobilized an unwilling 300,000 reservists, desperate to leave Russia. Within minutes of Putin’s announcement, flights abroad were sold out and neighboring countries with Russia promised no sanctuary for Russian troops. The Russian puppet governments are holding referendums to annex their territories and receive Russian protection. The Referendum in Donbas, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia are supposed to occur next week. Threatened by the Ukrainian counteroffensive, Putin is again threatening nuclear War. Can the World’s people stop Putin’s aggression. Perhaps the next days at the UN will seek a Global conclusion to the massacre of innocent people.

They’d like Russian protection and that can only come, they believe, with a vote to join Russia. Do these separatists represent all Ukrainians of this region? It’s unlike Ukrainians in Kherson would vote for Russia. On the diplomatic side, Turkey’s, Erdogan, is stating all land invaded should be returned to Ukraine and the a settlement negotiated. Erdogan proposal includes Crimea. The ball may be shifting to Diplomatic settlement for the benefit of the Global Community being harmed by this War , along with the Ukrainians.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The UN to debate the fate of the Ukrainian War. Putin has been chastised by Modi & Xi Jinping. The Ukrainian War has a direct correlation with Global South’s problems. Putin released Ukrainian grains for shipment to contracted areas in the Global South last month. Ukraine had to navigate through a sea covered in explosives. At last count 3.7 million tons had left Ukrainian ports. They’ve stored 20 million. The new harvest is almost ready and they’re planting in Russia’s battlefield, as missiles can land anywhere. The entire Globe is being held hostage by Putin. Global climate emissions have risen dangerously during the War. Ukraine is not a distraction, it’s the primary problem at this time! See for yourself, send reporters to Kyiv and see & understand events on the ground. Find the truth and share information with the Ukrainians. You may have a common enemy. Putin doesn’t care is many in emerging Nations perish. Remember Stalin’s plunder of Ukraine in 1932?

TheVoiceOfJoyce The War in Ukraine has reached a turning point. Arming Ukraine has united the Western Nations and created a stronger integrated EU. They’re all working together to help Ukrainians. The Ukrainian counteroffensive has reclaimed 2400 km of territory in the east and south. The head of State of Chechnya has questioned Putin’s reasoning? The municipalities of St Petersburg and Moscow have called for Putin’s resignation. Loyal oligarchs are questioning Russia’s Defense Ministry decision. This war will grind to a halt in November, due to weather conditions. However, with proper air defenses, Zelensky, can turn stalemate to victory. The Ukrainian War is not over. The Ukrainian counteroffensive is working. Russian forces have been routed or captured. Though the Ukrainian people are suffering, their infrastructure destroyed, as soon as it’s rebuilt, they have rallied to fight courageously against Russian occupation.

TheVoiceOfJoyce The Ukrainian counteroffensive is working. Kherson, Kharkiv have been retaken along with Ilium and 20 other towns. In retaliation, Russia is shelling critical infrastructure, placing cities in total darkness , without electricity, food or water. Many more civilians died in their battle to secure their homeland. The Russians are retreating,leaving behind their military supplies. The Nuclear Power Plant is not demilitarized. Russian ultimatums appear to be last ditch posturing. Russians have just removed another General in Command, from the Kharkiv region. Ukrainian forces have retaken 504 km in the North and South. That’s the news after 200 days of War. Two weeks of significant push back by the Ukrainian forces.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Chaos on the Russian front. Russia conscription proceeds with torture required to sign up recruits? Since this is not a declared war, no standing army required, only contract men conscripted, under duress. Meanwhile, Russia continues to use their occupied Nuclear Power Plant as a shield for shelling nearby towns. IAEA inspectors are making their way through the war zone and plan to arrive tomorrow. The Ukrainian offensive in Kherson is effective and the Russian “ puppet” has left for Russia. Russian’ s fired on two grain silos and one is burning in a Coastal Port. Meanwhile, The UN & Ukraine agree to designate Odessa as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Also, the price of oil is down as Europe finds other sources for energy fuels. Someone please tell Putin he’s winning and declare a cease fire, evacuation of all Russian troops and a return to peace and negotiations.

TheVoiceOfJoyce Day 166 and the Ukrainian Counteroffensive has begun. More wheat leaves Southern Ports. Zelensky and the UN want the Nuclear Power Plant to be a military free zone, not a launching pad for Russian missiles! The danger of a radioactive event is high. Meanwhile, as Ukrainian refugees, pour into other Countries, even Finland, Russia wants to hold a Referendum on Donetsk sovereignty. It’s too early for Referendums, peace and a cease fire should come first, then a real referendum should be voted upon by all citizens of the region, not just Russian puppets. Unfortunately, peace is not in the air and Russia is moving troops to solidify their hold on the Ukrainian Southern Ports. The Ukrainians are preparing for their offensive and supply routes are being cut. If Ukrainians feel Nationalistic, they have good reason. Many may remember, The Famine and Genocide, forced upon them by Joesph Stalin. Too bad Erdogan couldn’t persuade Putin to negotiate for Peace.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce It appears the War to control Kherson , the Ports and bridge to Crimea is about to start. Russia moving a 1000 troops in Crimea. Overnight Russian missiles struck Ukraine’s nuclear power plant, two reactors have been taken off line to prevent fallout. The EU, In support of Germany , agrees to reduce their gas consumption 15% , shared suffering and shared goals. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian counteroffensive should begin soon. They’ll attempt to cut off Russian supply lines. Let’s hope they’re successful!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Ministers are fighting back Climate Change denial, delay & uncertainty in Southern Communities and West Virginia. They’re adding Solar Panels to their Churches and re greening their properties with flowers, trees and plants native to the area. They’re starting small but they might want to add a movie night for discussion? The documentary “ Big Oil” produced in 3 Parts by the BBC & aired on PBS Frontline, is now streaming on Amazon prime. Ministers can also, lead the way to energy conversion of decommissioned coal mines. Solar Panels and Wind Turbines can integrate with existing infrastructure and produce jobs and sustainable energy. There are cycles in industry. Man and science evolve and as we discover better forms of energy, they replace the old. That is the nature of scientific discovery. Trust in our future. If we desire to survive & thrive, a lot can be accomplished, even in a year. Lockdown improved Hawaiian waters and brought back song birds to many towns. Change is occurring and that’s good. After over a 100 yrs of fossil fuels dominating our grid, it’s time to move on. The Scientists of the late 1970’s were right, the year 2000 would see an exponential rise in CO2 Emissions and that would cause catastrophic warming effects. It’s happening today and it’s cheaper to move forward with many alternatives, rather than rely on Fossil Fuels for our power!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Are we in the beginning of the last phase of Putin’s War? Will Ukrainian counterattacks successfully push back against Russian occupation to reclaim territory? Will Ukrainian wheat make a successful journey out of the southern Ports? What does Putin mean, when he wants his agriculture freed, too. Erdogan is meeting with Putin, the World should know the outcome of his talks. Is Putin over reaching in Ukraine, for a negotiating stance he can live with. Will the World ever stand up to bullying, especially , when every economy and environment is effected? This War was a War of opportunity for Russia. Putin expected no opposition, he’s bombed Ukrainian cities with the intent to destroy their infrastructure and humanitarian supplies routes. The Ukrainian and Russian people are collateral damage. Putin is conquering Ukrainian land and will annex, whoever & whatever , is left. Meanwhile, Zelensky has purged government of Collaborators and is on the offensive. What will a win look like?
