To be honest, I long to finally be able to write posts with no threat of a new world war looming over my head.

But I can’t yet.

Today, about the time I’ll publish this post, 6:00PM local Kyiv time, a cease fire command will be given and our soldiers will stop shooting.

Will the other side comply as well?

Putler already presented “his plan” of bringing peace to Ukraine.

Why the heck would he do it if his army isn’t there?

Will you join the Ukranians in prayer?

I know many of you have done that already and have been praying for months now. Thank you for that.

But it’s not over yet.

And also, besides a prayer for no war here, please pray for relationships between common Ukrainians and Russians.

I have already unfriended a couple of people on Facebook because I was simply too tired of their comments about the events in Ukraine.

I don’t blame them for believing the information they have. But I am simply tired of trying to explain myself or even having to explain myself.

The #ALSIceBucketChallenge in Ukraine has transformed into a charity flashmob supporting Ukrainian army. We have done it at my company recently. It caused a whole new barrage of comments from non-Ukrainians about “Oh, and here I thought it was ALS and instead you’re supporting killing people.”

Yes. I support Ukrainian army. I never thought I would support soldiers, and yet standing aside right now is impossible. There’s no middle ground. You’re either for Ukraine or you’re against Ukraine. And my choice here is easy.

I am a proud Ukrainian.

For the first time in my life (since brief period in 2004 during the Orange Revolution), I am proud to be a Ukrainian.

So… all I am saying… I sure hope it’s in God’s plans to end all this very soon, before more people are killed and tortured.
