War . . .

❗️❗️❗️In Irpin, russian military with numerous shots murdered a ‘New York Times’ journalist.
This was announced by Kyiv Police Chief Andriy Nebytov. A 51-year-old New York Times correspondent was killed in a shelling.
According to photos, American videographer Brent Renaud was killed.
Another journalist was injured. They are trying to get him out of the combat zone.

What a rum war this is.

When I was a boy we were in the Second World War. We would switch on the wireless to listen to the news on the BBC and would hear that German aircraft had “bombed towns in the north of England”. There were no more details than that because it was thought that it would be telling the Germans whether their raid had been successful and whether they had hit the right places.

Now, with this war in Ukraine we not only know where the raid took place but we can see pictures of the building or buildings that were hit – and sometimes the corpses of the victims.

Nor do we wait for the news broadcasts. I have “Telegram” on my mobile phone and laptop and via the feed ‘Ukraine Now’ in English and from the Ukraine Parliament ,’Verkhovna Rada‘, I get the news, pictures and videos in real time.
