So he's blessed that's all
Ukraine defied all odds. Russia is pretty much beaten and its army in shambles. Yes Ukraine may lose some territory in the worst case but Ukraine will live
All becoz of this short comedian called zelensky….n his regime
So sad stay safe people of Ukraine..
Can we get an update on this guy?
I want to go home to kyiv to see my father, and i took walks regularly on the bridge where the soldier is staying.
8 months later and Ukranian people have been to hell but emerged as the guardians of Europe. They are a beacon for the rest of the world.

The soldier/actor probably has another role now. If he can dance a bit, perhaps he's in an NHS Tic Tok dance, or possibly lying in a bed with monkey pox ?
Putina is real setan
Just coming back 9 months later and WoooooBoy what a change it had been for Ukraine. !
Some countries will do anything to bankrupt America all part of the plan probably bombing their own citizens
Why is Zelensky doing this to his people?
That's why we should give them a AC-130
Putin is acting like the dictator from the Soviet Union
Bombs have been falling I doubt it anyone's going to listen to a few gunshots
I hope he is still alive
This young man placement and situation is just a token gesture if violence flares up around him. What a world we live in. We really do need to Jesus to return soon
Dout menu Ukrainians are or even have shot there guns proxy war at its finest
Группа военных RSOTM даёт за подбитый Bradey футблку, а за Leopard две
Next week 1 year anniversary of this war, i want to know if sergiy is still alive, Peace
1 soldier to protect a bridge
One shot one kill
Looks like a CGI thumbnail, like game play….
Glory to Ukraine
Americans and Brits should stop this proxy war.
I can only pray to God for Ukraine.
I'm 70 & too old to volunteer & go fight for Ukraine there.
Putin is a murdering despot.
Russians are his slaves.
This is WW3 and Ukraine is bearing the brunt of it for the rest of the Western world.
It is doubtful Russia has plans to capture a heavily fortified city. The US has nuked Japan just because they did not want to fight in densely populated area. Russia is more humane than that, so a siege is likely if it comes to that at all. So Ukrainian military equipment and conscripts would bring more use if they used at the battlefront.
This aged well
Google “Holodomor”. Then, anyone in any country that are interested in saving the thousands more Ukrainians that will die, say something to someone else. History repeats itself.
Earth is a planet of the solar system,
Only living beings live on this earth,
No life has been found anywhere in space
People born and leaves the world forever
All of us one day
People cannot survive if they try
Millions of people feel helpless
The war should stop now,
Requests to Russia and Ukraine to end the war
