    this interviewee was clear, measured yet forceful. A good spokesman in other words.

    Snow White says:

    Stay strong the brave people of Ukraine!

    Glory to Russia from Poland – Dear Russians please eradicate threat of banderite ethnic clensing at our dorsteps. Best regards – Volhynia We Remember.

    Jose Alves says:

    Glória a Deus, viva a Ucrânia,,parabéns ao exército ucraniano

    Jussara Pontes da Cruz says:

    Amém!

    Лука Фіц says:

    Amen

    You will not understand todays Ukrainian “indentity” withour refering to Bandera and Suchyewicz. That historical sentiment was used by USA to pusch their politics. If You analyze todays Ukrainina actions through their 2WW history you will find a lot explanation. Ukraine is not homogenous “country” – Banterites trying to conduct and justify ethnic cleansing under cover of war because they have suceeded once with Volhynia – another miniority on this list are Hungarians in eastern Carpathia. That is why Hungary is not very friendly towards “Ukraine regime”

    eem says:

    We remotely celebrate with Ukraine for this achievement

    Wild Rose says:

    You will celebrate with the UkrainianNazis when they come to your home, ha ha ha

    Stephen Brand says:

    The people of Kherson were such badasses in the early days when they met the Russian soldiers with Ukrainian flags, no weapons but incredible courage bordering on recklessness. I was so humbled by their courage and patriotism!!

    He is incredible, respectful, determined, patriotic, well spoken, the list goes on. You can’t beat people like this

    Shindogoo 1 says:

    @loveandabcs sorry typo yes I meant to say beat!

    George says:

    Yes. Competence is extremely important in such a situation. The fact that Ukraine has so many bright, dedicated personnel helps to make the nearly miraculous progress more understandable, but no less impressive.

    Cookie says:

    And full of lies. Geneva convention is something unheard of in the Ukrainian army! Same goes to the other side…

    George says:

    @Cookie I’ve been observing this quite carefully, and we don’t know everything yet. But so far I’ve been extremely impressed with the Ukraine adherence to the laws of war. They have provided access to the Red Cross (which the Russians have not), as well as other observer groups and some media access (which of course might be showing only the best POW camps).

    The only violation that the Ukrainians have been accused of is using civilians as shields. This was however a rather hypocritical accusation, as the Russians were 1.) Doing the same thing, shielding themselves with Ukrainians. 2.) The idea that Ukrainian soldiers were abusing Ukrainian civilians by using them as shields loses any meaning in the context where the Russians showed no hesitation bombing civilians directly, where there was no front, no Ukrainian forces or military objectives (hospitals, schools, apartment buildings, agreed upon humanitarian convoys, etc.), over and over again.

    So, at this point, it appears that the Russians are fighting here much as in Syria, or like the US in Vietnam. The Ukrainians seem to be doing as well as or better than the US has ever done yet.

    Naturally, it’s not over yet. We may find out more, or more desperate acts may yet occur.

    Brave Ukrainians. The whole World very Proud of you guys…including Australia

    Malaka Tan says:

    @Jenny Lee Take back the nation from invader

    Free Gedanken zur Baukunst says:

    @Malaka Tan USA & Australia : land of war criminals . They must pay war reparations to Iraq , Libya , Afghanistan …. & send ALL their war criminals to the ICC

    Free Gedanken zur Baukunst says:

    The Inspector-General of the Australian Defence Force Afghanistan Inquiry Report, commonly known as the Brereton Report (after the investigation head), is a report into war crimes allegedly committed by the Australian Defence Force (ADF) during the War in Afghanistan between 2005 and 2016 . The report found evidence of the practice of “throwdowns”, where Australian troops would carry weapons and equipment not issued by the ADF for the purposes of planting on civilians killed in combat.[14][10]: 29  The weapons were then used in photographic and other evidence to give the illusion that the civilians were legitimate combatants.[10]: 29  The report speculates that throwdowns started for the “less egregious though still dishonest” purpose of avoiding scrutiny when legitimate combatants were later found to not be armed, but later evolved into the concealment of intentional unlawful murders.[10]: 29

    Ivan Losyk says:

    Our victory would not have been possible without you, friends! From the bottom of my heart i thank everyone who helps our country and the army in word and deed!

    Leigh Williams says:

    @ahenstew85and lone voice: Cool your jets, there, boys. You really just look stupid.

    Nisha Vasaikar says:

    Love your courage and determination Ukrainian friends. Wishing you all back to your Home Country safe and happy.

    Nisha Vasaikar says:

    @lone voice Y did they leave because they are thieves stealing others hard earned livelihood.

    Luckas Fbox says:

    @Brenda Raudebaugh thanks Canadian people’s for uniforms, and other ammunition for Ukranian Army! This is bigger pieces in the victory

    Luckas Fbox says:

    @lone voice what? :))) You’re seriously? lonely katcapik…

    Optimus Prime says:

    UV77MC says:

    great idea

    William Curtin says:

    @Freedom_At_Last This vet is proud to celebrate both our own vets and the incredibly beave and professional soldiers of a friendly country fighting to remain free.

    Dave Hughes says:

    @Freedom_At_Last honour your vets! Why are so many on the streets with terrible mental illnesses if you honour them so much? You use them up and forget about them, when they’ve done their service. Oh and even those vets on the street would honour their brothers in arms, regardless of what country they came from!

    Anatoliy Asanov says:

    It’s ironic that we celebrate those who fought nazis yet we support Bandera worshipers.

    Leigh Williams says:

    @Freedom_At_Last We honor ALL who fight in the cause of freedom! Slava Ukraini!

    Austrian says:

    Congratulations, Ukrainian forces! If you guys continue like that, you will certainly win this war! Huge respect from Austria!

    Leyto591 says:

    Yuriy Sak is a very impressive, articulate spokesman. If you need an example of a difference between the two fighting peoples, Sak sums it up.

    bolo says:

    I did not hear about him before, but Ukraine will need more of this skilled, inteligent people once rebuilding

    Peezie Forestem says:

    Especially when compared to Russian “diplomats”, such as Lavrov, Nebenzya, Kelin.

    Leyto591 says:

    @Peezie Forestem The Ruskies love their spokesmen to look like Bond villain caricatures. Abilities have never mattered much when selecting Kremlin apparatchiks. Leave that for the great writers or chess players – the truly brilliant Russians never have and maybe never will get close to the corridors of power. One more way Ukraine, where merit and brain counts for something, is a very different country.

    I am continually impressed by the intelligence, professionalism and determination of the Ukraine military, from the generals down to the foot soldiers.

    Calisto says:

    @cirrus2013 Silent? We know this for years… It’s an official agreement… And again, Ukraine is free to decide who’ll train their soldiers among all else that concerns their own country. Gfy!

    It’s a great day for all of us, Ukrainians. But it’s not only our small victory in this war, but also yours, our friends from all over the world, who support us and help us with all the necessary equipment and weapons. Thank you , dear friends!!!

    Melvin Jansen says:

    Yeah we need to have little victories like this man. Both Ukranians and others.

    Melvin Jansen says:

    @MRobocop defeat led russians to leave. In or outside of the city doesnt matter. Russians left Cherson. An important defensible position

    Jan Buysse says:

    NATO could use such a professional and well trained allie like Ukraine.

    rob shirewood says:

    ​@UV77MC The word is racists. My oath of allegiance is to my king and country not to NATO. My support is for truth, reality, justice, peace, I am a medical professional , military experienced and registered with OSCE i know the truth not the propaganda that pollutes the minds of those who do not seek the truth. The traitors are those who betray my nation, the UK, and its people, I do not and never will. I have over 20 years uniformed service to my nation and my late Queen and her people.my countrymen and women. If NATO enters this war openly, becoming a hot war, which the USA NATO and EU created, nobody will win, they are all insane. I will do my best to help anyone left alive, for as long as i can breathe and function. Having been trained in NBC/CBRN i know that will not be long.
