for now Sumy is safe but there was some looting early on. There are Russian troops less than 2 hours from Sumy on the border but for now all is calm.Western Ukraine is safe for now but there is no telling what Putin will do.
looks like Putin is sending more troops into Ukraine. There will will eventually be a battle for Marouple to give Russia a land bridge to Crimea. The west will not send equipment to Ukraine for fear of it being sold to Russia. To many commanders loyal to Russia were put in place for this well planned war with Ukraine.
