RUSSIA’S INVASION of Ukraine has become too easy for us to ignore.
We in North America may have relegated the invasion to the far reaches of our collective consciousness, but millions don’t have that luxury.
Thursday, Unicef reported almost 100 children were killed during the month of April alone, a statistic that should shock and anger the entire world.
The United Nations has called for an end to bombing of Ukrainian schools — something that shouldn’t need to be done if the invading force had any moral high ground at all.
But Vladimir Putin has no underpinning to his actions, be it moral or strategic. He is driven only by his own ego and lust for power.
