I bet there are a lot of Ukrainians who grew up listening to stories about what Grandma and Grandpa saw in and did to survive the horrors of the Holodomor.
I suspect a deep, generations long grudge is held against the Russians for that.
I can only imagine if the Russians came back how these people would react.
I wonder what Ukrainian is for “a rifle behind every blade of grass.”
The Russian might be successful but it will cost them dearly.
