Vice President Kamala Harris spent time Saturday to mark the 10-year anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death as war raged in Eastern Europe.
“Trayvon Martin’s death ten years ago sparked a movement. Since then, we have watched too many others die. We have called their names. We have embraced their families. We have worked for justice—and still do—because their lives matter,” posted the VP on Twitter.
Footage of Ukrainian President Zelensky surfaced on social media Saturday showing the leader taking a quick break with soldiers defending the Capital City of Kyiv.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s hope for a quick victory in Kyiv is not going according to plan as Ukrainian officials claim more than 3,500 troops have been killed and more than 600 vehicles destroyed.
The Ministry of Defense reports:
- 3,500 Russian Soldiers Killed
- 102 Tanks Destroyed
- 536 Armored Vehicles Destroyed
- 14 Fighter Jets Shot Down
- 8 Helicopters Shot Down
