The Night of the Shahed: Stars React to the Attack on Ukraine on Holodomor Remembrance Day and Tell How to Resist Russia
On the night of November 25, the day when Ukrainians traditionally commemorate the victims of the Holodomor of 1932-33, Russian troops attacked Ukraine with Iranian Shahed kamikaze drones. More than 70 enemy UAVs were shot down over Kyiv and other regions, and Ukrainian stars responded to the attack.
They sat out the massive drone strike in shelters, corridors, and bathrooms, following the "two walls" rule, and later thanked the air defense forces and reminded Ukrainians how everyone can resist Russia. The posts appeared on their social media accounts.
The celebrities not only wrote that the best way to help the Armed Forces is to support them financially, but also made donations and shared their actual collections.
Many media outlets were outraged that the Russians launched a terrorist attack on the day when Ukrainians remember the victims of the genocide committed by the occupiers' ancestors.
"Did you think they had gone away? No, they didn't. They continue to be our neighbors. I will probably upset you, but it will be more often, because their terrorist idea to leave us without heat and light has not gone away," wrote TV presenter Andrii Bedniakov.
His colleague Masha Yefrosinina added that she believes in air defense and sincerely wishes Russia would "pay for it".
On this day, singer Sofia Rotaru honored the victims of the Holodomor, singer Natalia Mohylevska posted a destroyed kindergarten, and actress Olga Sumska shared a viral picture "Night of the Vsr*t Shaheds" by Anatolii Matiakh.
