“I’m so sad. What can I say? How can I be happy? I’m so sad. My life is ruined.”
The Russian military launched a retaliatory strike the day after the US and Germany announced they were supplying Ukraine with their latest tanks.
On this day, Russia fired nearly 80 self-destructing missiles and drones across Ukraine, killing at least 11 people and injuring 11 others.
Russia has made no secret that the attack is a warning to the West.

“The United States and NATO[tanciau ategol]translates directly into the conflict.”
Ukraine, which has been promised tank support, is now demanding the latest fighter jets from the West.
Ukraine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs wrote on social media, “We have a new task ahead of us, a Western fighter,” and a member of parliament even raised the model, saying, “We need the F-16.”
Meanwhile, the United States and Europe have been reluctant to support advanced fighter jets on the grounds that they may provoke Russia to expand the war, and discussions on this are expected to start sooner or later.
