We Stand with Ukraine

Flag of Ukraine

It seems everybody these days has to publically declare their position on the brutal Russian invasion of Ukraine. We stand with Ukraine and its people, fighting against military forces attacking civilians. We salute their heroic battle for democracy. We stand with every nation fighting against tyranny and for human rights.

We also side with the truth, so here’s a quick list of reliable sources on the conflict.
