A Ukrainian agriculture journalist chronicles the challenges of sowing a crop during wartime.
Ukrainians will farm their land, even in the face of war.
In the Kherson area of southern Ukraine, where war rages and the city of Kherson is seen by the Russian invaders as strategic, a column set out on Monday.
This was a column of tractors, under the flag of Ukraine. In it were farmers and ordinary citizens, determined to directly declare to the occupiers that Ukraine will not comply with their demands, and will sow grain and harvest bread in their native land.
There is a story that, early in the invasion, when the first Russian soldiers entered southern Ukraine, an old woman approached them.
