A message to all our dear friends, patrons, and neighbors...
We fully stand firm with the world in condemning Vladimir Putin's war of aggression. The unprovoked assault on Ukraine is a tragedy. Like many, we have family in Ukraine, and in Russia, for whose safety we are very concerned. Some of our family in Russia have even gone so far as to join in the protests, with adverse consequences. As has been repeated over and over, the Russian people are not the enemy. Our hearts are saddened by all who are overwhelmed and suffering because of Putin's military invasion. We fervently pray that a peaceful outcome can, and will be reached quickly, and we will continue to denounce Putin's totalitarianism in all of its insanity.
Vitaly, Paul, and Olga Shukin
