Russia underestimated Ukraine and Ukraine mistook Russia. Russia invaded Ukraine because of that. The Ukraine government wasn't fully ready for the invasion. For example, because they use weapons made in the former Soviet Union, they had to retrain their soldiers to use weapons made in Western Countries provided by them. The width of the train rails is different between Western countries and Ukraine, so when relief supplies from Western countries had to be carried to Ukraine by trains, those supplies need to be transshipped to Ukraine trains at the borders of Ukraine. It has taken a lot of time for Ukraine to have support from Western countries. Many Ukraine people died in the meanwhile.

Governments must be always ready for the worst situation to protect their people's lives and property.

  • You are totally right, dear Tam.

    Our government didn't believe that russia could invade our country and start a full-scale war. They weren't ready for that. To be honest no one believed it could happen in the centre of Europe. It was our biggest mistake. We should not trust someone if he deceived us many times. Moreover if he is really insane. 

    • Hello, Svitlana. Thank you for your comment. I want to say that I am concerned about the Ukrainian people and respect Ukrainian soldiers who fight against invaders and protect their own country.

      Yes, I agree with you. Everybody thought that Putin was not so stupid as he would decide to invade Ukraine. But it was wrong. His thoughts are very different from the ones of the leaders in democratic countries.

    • Thank you so much for your care and for your support 🙏. All the world is with us. 🤗. Despite all difficulties I am sure we will win 💙💛✌️. We have no other way except the victory. ✌️

  • It seems that all governments must be ready for such situations since the world has always had and will have f**** bastards with backwards ideas.
    Any sovereign nation has the right to follow its own path, any society has the right to be free and follow their own lifestyle...
    In any case humanity has always made their way to progress in spite of these 'people'.           So does Ukraine. 

    • Hi, Estanis. Thank you for your comment. I agree with you.
