79 years of age and not frightened of Putin…

A 79-year-old great-grandmother who took part in civilian combat training in Ukraine was today flooded with praise as the country braced itself for invasion from Russia. Valentyna Konstantynovska was taught how to use an AK-47 assault rifle by the country’s national guard in Mariupol, eastern Ukraine, yesterday.

This lady is going to be the poster girl for the fight against Russia. She has shown that even at her age she will not give in to tyranny and threats and has decided to do the one thing we are all capable of doing, and that is fighting for our land, our homes and our way of life.

Mrs Konstantynovska is a hero and she is a hero of young and old and shows not a sign of desperation but a sign of hope, because if you get people young and old prepared to stand up again evil then there is a hope that a better world will rise from this.

Ukrainians described Ms Konstantynovska as a 'hero' for taking part in the drills, which have also seen children as young as four put through their paces

I asked Mr Points of Sue if we would fight if the same thing happened here, and we both agreed that even with our health issues we would both tip up at a military establishment and offer our services. My darling father once said at the age of 70 that he could still fire a weapon and if needs be he could be put down on a piece of land given a gun, ammunition and let him fight. It seems that the older you get the more you are prepared to fight for your country…….. Valhalla is made of heroes such as this.

I was wrong to insist that we keep out of any war with the Ukraine. I was not wrong to insist that we keep out of it if all it will do is save Johnson’s Premiership but if it saves the lives of a fine lady like this who is willing to protect herself, then of course we must help and we must be prepared to send weapons and aid.

I hope the fact that a 79 year old is willing to put her life on the life make youngsters realise that it is people like her who will be trying to save their lives and their country, and it brings a notable difference between this iron lady and the young men tipping up on beaches illegally and unwanted for handouts instead of staying and fighting for their country.

I know who I would sooner save and she is fast becoming a super hero to all of us. God bless her and keep her and her fellow countrymen and women safe.

  1. How to understand Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine? To what does this unilateral action compare? Turkey’s invasion of Cyprus in 1974… A more ancient act of imperialism, the Anglo-Norman invasion of Ireland took place during the late 12th century.
    The latter example not now nearly as pertinent as the former. The issue at stake, centers not upon Russian interests to keep the Ukraine out of joining NATO, but rather the disgrace of UN hypocrisy and its silence to denounce and condemn this latest invasion by countries who dream, think France, that they should merit the status as a ‘Great Power’ in Europe.
    The UN repeats and perpetuates this continuous drip-cowardice; the UN condemns repeatedly ad infinitum the Jewish State of Israel. Yet when China pulls shtik with the Uyghurs of Xinjiang, likewise comparable to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, UN piety immediately loses its religion. Therefore, it seems to me that Nations should respond to UN hypocrisy by withdrawing membership from this House of Cards club.
    The Russia\China axis thrived during the Stalin\Mao era. China faces a similar fuel crisis as did Japan during WWII. Formosa and the Japanese Islands make control of the ocean quite formidable. Therefore China would very much like to conquer Taiwan. For China to fight and win a war that would most probably trigger multi-national involvement, it requires a secure ally which can supply it with oil and gas. Russia fits that need to a tee. Mao rejected Khrushchev’s denunciation of Stalin’s war crimes. That’s when Sino–Russian relations turns south.
    Russia, even after the fall of the USSR, remains the odd man out among Nato dominated Western European governments. The West, currently jabbering about sanctions blah blah. The Art of War centers upon crippling the supply lines of the enemy. A failure which defines the defeat of US imperialist invasions in both Vietnam and Afghanistan. Those supply lines represent the underbelly of the beast. Quite naturally all belligerent nations understand this critical weakness. A Sino-Russian alliance make tremendous good strategic sense for a new Cold War Russia.
