Embarrassing moment for Ukr military a few days ago. Pro-Russian militia routes convoy near Donetsk..



They’ve shown more resolve since then, installing a border barrier, and digging in fighting positions.

I’ve heard interviews with soldiers in Sumy saying they are overwhelmed with gifts from the populace. I also heard a report of Ukrainian special forces near the border in Donetsk being asked to move away from a village b/c the village didn’t want any fighting near them.
