Additionally, dozens were injured. “We are issuing arms to all those capable of defending our sovereignty,” said Zelensky in a televised address from Kyiv. CNN broadcasted a translation of the speech. “Each citizen of Ukraine will decide the future of our people. Anyone with military experience who is able to join the defense of Ukraine must report to call-up stations.”

 

Ukraine will not “cede its freedom” said Zelensky. “Whatever they might think in Moscow, to Ukrainians independence and the right to live on our land is the highest value,” Zelensky said. “Russia has attacked our state in a cunning way, in the way Nazi Germany did during the Second World War.”

Ukrainian Interior Ministry has said there have already been hundreds of casualties Thursday after Russian troops moved in on Ukraine. Oleksiy Arestovich, an adviser for Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky confirmed over 40 Ukrainian soldiers were killed on Thursday morning.

National Review reports:

Zelensky’s statement was issued hours after Russia began shelling virtually every major Ukrainian population center, including the capital city of Kyiv; Kharkiv, the second-largest city in Ukraine, which sits just 20 miles from the Russian border; and Odessa, the strategically valuable southern port city. The aerial bombardment was swiftly followed by a ground incursion featuring Russian tanks and armored personnel carriers streaming through multiple checkpoints on the Russian-Ukrainian border.

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Oleg Nikolenko claimed four Russian tanks were “burned on Kharkiv ring road.”

Footage of burned apartment buildings in the city of Kharkiv showed potential evidence of Russian attacks on civilian targets, the New York Times reported. 

Ukrainians lined up at banks to retrieve valuables on Thursday, including in Lviv in the west of the country.

“They sent us a message and said come collect all your valuable today, tomorrow we will be closed,” Christina Kornienko told the Times. Kornienko said she thought the most likely scenario would be that “the women will go to Poland, and the men will fight.”

Air raid sirens sounded earlier in the morning in Lviv, where U.S. diplomatic had moved recently for fear of being caught in the crossfire nearer to the Russian border in Kyiv.. American staff are now working out of Poland.

    There are many casualties in war: physically, spiritually, psychologically!
    PTSD lasts for years.
    Who writes those headlines should be psychologically assessed by a very perceptive dctor in the subject.

Putin has said in recent years that Finland is considered friendly so long as they do not join NATO. Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Sunday he has applied for NATO membership.

MetroUK tweeted chilling video and reported the following:

Russia has started moving nuclear-capable missiles towards its border with Finland hours after Moscow vowed not to tolerate Helsinki’s plans to join Nato.

The Kremlin issued a chilling warning that plans for both Finland and Sweden to sign up to the Atlantic alliance were a ‘grave mistake with far reaching consequences’.

Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said: ‘They should have no illusions that we will simply put up with it,’ and insisted ‘the general level of military tension will rise’.

The video was reportedly taken on a road leading to Vyborg, around 24 miles from the Finnish border, showing the deployment of mobile Iskander missiles.

“Seven launchers are thought to be en route according to commentary on a dash cam video broadcast by Russian media.”

A person on the video can be heard saying: ‘As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining Nato, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them is moving towards Vyborg.

‘Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.’
