Vladimir Putin tried to crush Ukraine. Instead, he made its cultural identity even stronger.
I am angry that Russia might get away with what it has done to Ukraine, that my friends and loved ones are constantly in danger. But I have no way to release this emotion, so it builds.
‘If you are a good comedian in the U.S., you can have a late-night show. If you are a good comedian in Ukraine, you can destroy Russia.’
If Putin uproots us all, he will win.
I understand why democratic countries are reluctant to fight, but I worry they don’t understand what will happen next.
