Putin can proclaim all he wants in Moscow, but the reality on the ground, in Ukraine, is what matters. Putin’s too much of a wuss to even go make his proclamation in Ukraine.

Ukrainian flag raised in Lyman, fighting continues – Zelensky
01.10.2022 23:19 https://www.ukrinform.net
The Ukrainian flag has already been raised in the Donetsk region’s Lyman, although fighting is still going on in the city.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his video address, an Ukrinform correspondent reports. https://youtu.be/VI8MKrFsZPI

“The Ukrainian flag is already in Lyman, Donetsk region. Fighting is still going on there. But there is no trace of any pseudo-referendum there,” Zelensky said.

In his words, this week more Ukrainian flags have appeared in eastern Ukraine, and their number will be increasing.

According to the President of Ukraine, Russians have already started to look for somebody to blame for their loss among the military command.

“This is the first bell that should be heard at all levels of the Russian government. Until you all solve the problem with the one who started it all, who started this senseless for Russia war against Ukraine, you will be killed one by one, making scapegoats, so as not to admit that this war is a historical mistake for Russia,” Zelensky noted.

In addition, the Head of State emphasized Ukraine would return all of its territories, including Crimea. mkhttps://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-ato/3583951-ukrainian-flag-raised-in-lyman-fighting-continues-zelensky.html

“We thank the “Ministry of Defense” of Russia for successful cooperation in organizing the “Izyum 2.0” exercise. Almost all russian troops deployed to Lyman were successfully redeployed either into body bags or into captivity. We have one question for you: Would you like a repeat?”

Psalm 91:
1. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”
