Unsurprisingly, there’s been no let up in the shelling, with artillery now being used by Russia’s forces. February has been a bloody month, with a steady flow of Ukraine’s sons killed and wounded. Inevitably, with more civilian houses being hit, it wont be long before we see yet more civilians in cemeteries laid to rest beside soldiers.
With Ukraine’s presidential elections in full swing, the gradual increase in ferocity of Russia’s shelling and corresponding propaganda blaming Ukraine for everything was all too predictable.
