“History will remember that the Regime/Russian criminality took mercy on nothing. Not a human being, a fledgling bird nor a rock on the ground….It is our hope that what will shine greater in the annals of history is the respect for life the White Helmets paid every living thing they encountered. Even motherless hatchlings give them a moment for pause & prayer.”
