A New & United Europe

The locals had reportedly taken shelter in a school building in a Ukrainian village in order to save their lives. However, the Russian Forces dropped a bomb on that school, killing around 60 innocent civilians. Governor of Luhansk region Serhiy Gaidai confirmed the news, saying in a statement that about 90 people had taken shelter at the school in Bilohorivka that was hit by a Russian bomb on May 7 (2022), setting it ablaze. “There is almost no hope that anyone survived. The aerial bomb exploded in the middle (of the building). In the school, there were approximately 90 people, 27 were rescued. About 60 people were probably killed,” stressed the governor.

According to Governor Gaidai, it took nearly four hours to extinguishing the fire. And then, the Fire Brigade officials started removing the rubbles. They rescued only 13 people alive, while six others received serious injuries. The Governor informed the press that the Russian Forces completely destroyed the school building.

May 8 is marked as the ‘Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation’ in memory of those killed by the Nazis during the Second World War. On this special day, a Greek women’s organisation staged protests in Athens against the Russian aggression in Ukraine in 2022.

Although the Kremlin has claimed that the Russian Forces are targeting only the Ukrainian military bases, Ukraine has slammed Russia for lying. Kiev has mentioned in a statement that the Ukrainian Forces rescued civilians from the Azovstal iron and steel factory in Mariupol on May 6. Speaking at a press conference, Deputy Commander Captain Sviatoslav Palama stressed that the Russian Forces were continuously firing at the factory, as they wanted to destroy it. “We will continue to fight as long as we are alive to repel the Russian occupiers,” added Captain Palama. He made it clear that there was no question of surrender, as nearly 25,000 people sacrificed their lives in Mariupol.

For his part, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said on May 8 that “evil has returned” to Europe, as he compared Russia’s invasion to Nazi Germany during an address commemorating the Second World War. He told the audience: “Decades after World War II, darkness has returned to Ukraine, and it has become black and white again.” President Zelenskyy further said: “Evil has returned, in a different uniform, under different slogans, but for the same purpose.” He accused Russia of implementing a “bloody reconstruction of Nazism” in Ukraine, using “its ideas, actions, words and symbols“. According to the President, the Russian Army is replicating Nazi “atrocities” and giving justification that “aims to give this evil a sacred purpose“.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy speaks during a joint news conference with International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Rafael Grossi in Kiev on April 26, 2022.

On May 8, the entire Europe celebrated its victory over Nazi Germany in the Second World War, and on May 7, the Berlin Police imposed a ban on flying Ukrainian and Russian flags. However, hundreds of Germans ignored the warning, and took to the streets in the German capital with Ukrainian flags.

Political analysts are of the opinion that the Russia-Ukraine War has united the Europeans, yet again.
