It’s now day 149 of Russia’s War against Ukraine. War affects millions of lives of common people in, but also outside Ukraine. In the first place the young men and women who are fighting at the front of freedom. Overnight their common lives changed from peaceful living men and women doing his or her daily work, being brother or sister, mum or dad. Then they became actor in a ‘Apocalypse Now’ fighting for the freedom of their Ukrainian nation. Giving their life, getting wounded, or acting in heroic ways. War also affects the Ukrainian society. Grandparents and grandchildren, and all in between, have do endure losses of their loved ones. But they also support their army in unique and creative ways. Like this girl playing flute raising money for the army.
Tonight, in episode 23 of Dont Give Up Ukraine!, we want to discuss these different faces of war with Professor Taras Tymo. Taras Tymo covered the first hundred days of the war on his Youtube channel on a daily basis. By that Taras provided a unique chronicle of the war, starting from day one.
Taras Tymo is a Professor in theology at the Ukraine Catholic University in Lviv and an expert in Patristics. He is also an active organizer and fundraiser for ‘Help to the Frontlines’ supporting soldiers at the front.
