TheVoiceOfJoyce Not since Hitler, has another country attempted to claim 15-18 % of another European nation by force. 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 The Ukrainian Russian War gets more complicated daily. On day 216, Putin is calling no up troops and they’re not going to be conscripted readily. Many young Russians have been jailed (2600), for avoiding War. The lines of Russians escaping to Georgia, Estonia & Zaporizhzhia are increasing. Once the Russians get to the towns holding referendums, will they fight for Ukraine? On Friday, Putin addresses Parliament, sealing the fate of his newly formed colonies & 15% of Ukrainian territory. Ukrainians are not giving up on their Counteroffensive and there’s intense fighting in 3 regions. The UN declares Russia has committed War Crimes and the Japanese ambassador was held in Russia for hours of interrogation before being released and making matters worse for Europe, the Nordstrom pipeline has sprung leaks between Sweden and Denmark, complicating their deteriorating energy supply. War’s end depends upon Zelensky and not Putin. Support for a free sovereign Ukraine continues to grow.

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.

The Ukrainian counteroffensive can’t stop and must push forward, even while Referendums are held. Retaking Russian controlled territory is a military imperative.

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.
