Newspaper backs war-torn nation with Ukrainian front page headline

A newspaper ran a front page headline in Ukrainian as the regional press show of support for the invaded country continues.

Translated, the phrase means ‘Glory to Ukraine’ and was accompanied by a quote from former US president John F. Kennedy at the beginning of the Cold War.

The full quote reads: “We shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”
