This is a very difficult post to write. I am struggling to find the words. My fingers just hover over the keyboard.
Our tears and shock have now turned into anger. How can this be happening to our beautiful, independent country in 2022? Everything that our parents and grandparents went through over 70 years ago is repeating itself today.
What Ukraine might lack in military might, she makes up for in determination and spirit – something that Putin gravely underestimated.
Over the last 2 weeks the Ukrainian Community in Melbourne and wider Victoria has been rallying and lobbying, getting the message out there.
Many members from our Noble Park Branch have attended the last 2 rallies held in Melbourne and our Branch has so far raised over $4,7000 to donate to the Ukraine Crisis Appeal for humanitarian aid.
Please GOD do not let history repeat itself
Glory to Ukraine
Liana Slipetsky, President Noble Park Branch
