Yesterday morning warlike, but calm. In the late afternoon there were alarms in the south of Ukraine. Evening, at about 8 pm all Ukraine red, alarms, rockets explosions.
At night, at about 2 o’clock, all Ukraine in alarms.

The Word… Attention! The Word warns us: “Cursed is the man who puts his hope in man, and who sees his strength in the flesh, and turns his heart away from the Lord.”
“The heart is more treacherous than all else and incorrigible – who will fathom it? I, the Lord, examine the heart and test the kidneys, that I may render to each according to his conduct, according to the fruit of his deeds.”
I invite you to listen to Ps 1.
Therefore, once again. Note: “If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, then even if someone rose from the dead, they will not believe.”
Listen to God to live and be happy.”

We live in a war, we do not live by war.

Kharkiv (from Mrs. Tetiana):

4am…. All of Ukraine under fire.
What this means is that the enemy has been preparing this for a long time.
Today, March 9, the birthday of Taras Shevchenko.
Kharkiv. Explosions, explosions.
They write about 13… and another news, rockets fly again.
The light is gone. And in some places they were glad that the second evening already started to turn on the street lights in the evening.
Wait that Russia will just stop one day—illusion.

Ukraine (from President V. Zelenskyy):

It’s been a difficult night. A massive rocket attack across the country. Kyiv, Kirovohrad, Dnipro, Odesa, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Zhytomyr, Vinnytsia regions. Attacks on critical infrastructure and residential buildings.
Unfortunately, there are injured and dead. My condolences to the families.

All services are working. The energy system is being restored. Restrictions were imposed in all regions.

The enemy fired 81 missiles in an attempt to intimidate Ukrainians again, returning to their miserable tactics. The occupiers can only terrorize civilians. That’s all they can do. But it won’t help them. They won’t avoid responsibility for everything they have done.

We thank the guardians of our skies and everyone who helps to overcome the consequences of the occupiers’ sneaking attacks!
