How can Putin kill so recklessly?
He has a train of death moving towards Kyiv. A 40 mile convoy of tanks and other vehicles. Seventeen miles away from Kyiv at the moment. Slow moving.
Air strikes would wipe the convoy out. The Ukraine has insufficient planes. A resolution is in the works. Ukrainian pilots are in Poland training on MIGS. Many previously trained on them. The game plan appears to involve the Ukraine pilots flying out of Poland to hopefully destroy the 40 mile convoy of tanks, etc.
I am confused art this point. How can Poland permit the use of their airfields for the use of Ukraine pilots to fly out to destroy Russian tanks? I thought the NATO Charter prohibited a NATO nation from getting involved unless there was an attack on another NATO country. Ukraine is not a member of NATO.
From my perspective, the world cannot stand by and permit the pending slaughter. Rules should be set aside. The bully must be stopped, destroyed.
The Ukrainian seaside resort of Berdyansk is occupied by Russian soldiers.
A small shop owner said: “Frightened kids, frightened looks. They want to eat.”
The hunger problem is working two ways. Russian soldiers apparently not eating also. They went into a supermarket and grabbed canned meat, vodka, and cigarettes: “They ate right in the store. It looked like they haven’t been fed in recent days.”
Necessity is the mother of invention. The Ukraine doing whatever necessary to win.
An example is the offer by the Ukraine to Russian soldiers. The Ukraine is offering the soldiers cash and full amnesty to stop fighting. Requires a voluntary surrender.
The money offer is 5 million rubles. Less than $50,000 at the moment because currency has cratered amid global sanctions.
Numbers vary as to Ukraine war dead and injured. The UN Commissioner for Human Rights says 406 civilians affected: Three hundred four injured, 102 killed including 7 children.
Other sources indicate as many as 1,500 killed and injured.
A number have fled the Ukraine for neighboring countries. The present estimate 500,000.
Oksana Markarova is the Ukraine Ambassador to the United States. He said Russian forces have invaded his country acting like Nazis during World War II and hitting innocent cities.
Mitt Romney spoke out yesterday re certain members of his party. He said, “I’ve got morons on my team…..anyone who would sit down with White nationalists and speak at their conference are certainly missing a few IQ points.”
His reference was to the America First Political Action Committee Conference in Orlando. Romney was blasting GOP members who attended or spoke. White Nationalists support Putin and are anti-Semitic.
Two “prominent” Republicans spoke. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene in person and Representative Paul Gospar via a pre-recorded message.
