I Stand with Ukraine.
For two days, I hear more and more about friends, I mean friends in the real life, not Facebook contacts. They are sheltering their wife and their kids in other part of the country, but also abroad including France.
These friends say goodbye to their beloved ones. They stay on their ground. They are mobilized or they decide by themselves to join the Ukrainian army, left alone to defend its land and its values against the second most powerful armed force of the world.
I do wonder how many of these men will be dead in a few months or in a few days. I do wonder about how many wonderful children will be orphans, how many admirable ladies will become widows, because of the madness of one single criminal.
I do not tolerate any kind of relativism in this tragedy. There is no perfect people on this earth. It is always possible to extract a few individuals to blame an entire nation or to « justify » a general massacre.
In such a confusion, purposely designed, even by politicians of my country, France, you have to make a choice. Just look who is the aggressor and who is the assaulted. Then, the picture is clear. Stand with the assaulted. Stand with Ukraine.
