As Russian President Vladimir Putin reportedly predicted that the invading Russia troops will take over Ukraine in a matter of two or three days, a little girl of 8 years old, Alisa Zhuk has literally joined the war by selling off her drawings and donated all proceeds to the Ukrainian Army.
It was gathered that the little girl took the decision to ensure the Ukrainian Army have enough food and clothes to fight the invading Russia soldiers.
As at the time of filing in this report, over 6,000 dollars have been raised by the little girl and all donated to support her country armed forces to push out the enemy invading Russian soldiers.
Alisa Zhuk who hails from Kyiv is one of the show of braveness displayed by various Ukrainian citizens since the war began according to New York Times.
“That of 8-year-old Alisa Zhuk from Kyiv, are especially touching. The little girl is selling her drawings for $20 and up, donating all proceeds to the army — to make sure that Ukrainian soldiers have enough food and clothes, she said. “Our children,” her mother told me, “will grow up proud of Ukraine.”
“Many citizens have gone a step further in their support and joined territorial defense units. As of February 26, two days into Russia’s invasion, 37,000 Ukrainians were signed up.
“Now journalists, artists, musicians, TV hosts, comedians and thousands of others are patrolling the streets. Using conventional arms and Molotov cocktails — which have become something of a revered national weapon — they have apprehended saboteurs, shot down drones and stopped enemy tanks. In the defense of our country, they have been indispensable”, New York Times article reads.
