People wrote about Ukraine long before anyone ever heard of Russia.
Russia is now trying to rewrite history. They are trying to spread a lie that says that Ukraine did not exist before Russia. It is simply not true. Russia will not succeed at changing history. The fact is that Kyiv existed before Moscow. That part of history cannot be changed. No amount of lies, or this insane war, will change the facts.
Ukraine will win this war because Putin is living a lie, and the truth always wins out.
One interesting thought about this war. Putin is paying mercenaries to fight this insane battle. Ukraine has volunteer soldiers from around the world coming to fight for freedom. This speaks volumes.
