He “had no idea”.
That after achieving independence.
His country would one day be at war.
With his country’s closest neighbour.
He was “sure we'd be friends with our neighbours”.
“Trust me, I had no idea.
That our closest neighbour would turn out.
To be the most impudent and cunning one.”
“We're with the power of light.
And light is definitely more powerful than darkness.”
“We will defeat the Orcs, and trust me.
The country of Mordor will disintegrate into separate statelets.
"We will definitely see its disintegration.
And we'll stay united and independent.”
People across Ukraine have been marking Independence Day.
A day which coincides with the six-month anniversary of the ‘orcs’ invasion.
