Ukraine faces a serious challenge over the next 5 to 10 years, Today's challenge is compounded by Russian invasion and the real lack of true support from Western soucres. it is like the West is willing to accept 10,000 deaths, and that they will accept many more, say 100,000 or far more. The West continues to stick its head in the ground in regards to Putin and just as Hitler Putin will invade more nations and cause more deaths.

The failure of Ukrainians leaders is appalling the continued effort to keep corruption in place is killing the nation, these men and women need to stop and put Ukraine first in their life above all else.
