TWR UKRAINE UPDATE: The BBC reported that at least 19 people were killed and scores more injured in a series of Russian missile attacks across Ukraine. Kyiv, where Chmut and his team live and work, was hit for the first time since June.
Alexander Chmut and other members of the TWR Ukraine team report an extraordinary sense of peace when Russian missile attacks hit the capital city of Kyiv on Monday, Oct. 10. Russian President Vladimir Putin said the attacks, which continued into Tuesday, were in retaliation for an explosion that damaged a bridge between Russia and Russian-occupied Crimea. The BBC reported that Putin blamed the explosion on Ukraine.
TWR’s contact with the Ukraine team reported that they were sad and angry over the attacks, which occurred during rush hour. But they were not deterred. “They are alive and active for service.”
