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.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
