From Maia Mikhaluk in Kyiv (311th day of ruzzian invasion):
Update. Our first night of 2023 turned out to be very loud. The air raid was from 00:30 till 5am and 32 drones were shot over Kyiv.
It’s already 2023 in Ukraine! We welcomed this New Year with one wish – for Victory to come soon.
New Year’s Eve was loud with air raid sirens and explosions and in the first minutes of this New Year ruzzians “greeted” us in their maniacal way – Ukraine is under attack by drones and missiles now, in the first minutes of New Year. I guess it is supposed to scare us, but it really looks like these relentless attacks of the past 3 days are an agony of a loser and psychopath.
Light will overcome Darkness. May it be soon!
Arise, Lord, in your anger;
rise up against the rage of my enemies.
Awake, my God; decree justice.
7 Let the assembled peoples gather around you,
while you sit enthroned over them on high.
8 Let the Lord judge the peoples.
Vindicate me, Lord, according to my righteousness,
according to my integrity, O Most High.
9 Bring to an end the violence of the wicked
and make the righteous secure—
you, the righteous God
who probes minds and hearts.
10 My shield[d] is God Most High,
who saves the upright in heart.
11 God is a righteous judge,
a God who displays his wrath every day.
12 If he does not relent,
he[e] will sharpen his sword;
he will bend and string his bow.
13 He has prepared his deadly weapons;
he makes ready his flaming arrows.
14 Whoever is pregnant with evil
conceives trouble and gives birth to disillusionment.
15 Whoever digs a hole and scoops it out
falls into the pit they have made.
16 The trouble they cause recoils on them;
their violence comes down on their own heads.
17 I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness;
I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High.
