For people who don’t know, Christmas in Russia/Ukraine is a more traditional advent thing, and it’s not commercialized like in the West.
It’s also on the 7th of January, because the Eastern Church uses the Julian (solar) calendar.
So, New Year’s is the bigger celebration day of the period.
They’ve even started with the Western-style gifts, but they do it on New Year’s, not on Christmas.
Ukraine’s rulers decided this was a good time to send bombs at randos last night.
Remember that the people they are murdering are, according to them, “Ukraine people.”
The day before, on Saturday, they launched a barrage at rando civilians in Belgorod, which is on the other side of the 1991 border.
So we know they’re evil for sure.
Only violent savages could stoop so low as to attack civilians on New Year’s night, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has said, referring to a Ukrainian shelling of Donetsk that left several people dead.
On Monday, minutes after midnight, Ukraine’s military launched a massive rocket strike on the center of Donetsk, firing at least 15 missiles, according to local officials. Denis Pushilin, the head of Russia’s Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), said citing preliminary data that the attack killed four people and injured 13 others.
TASS news agency reported, citing emergency services, that the Ukrainian strike killed a war correspondent, with another one wounded, without giving any personal details.
