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.

    It is called WAR!
    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.
    Those DEMON RATS schools have twisted the mind of the students into believing that STUPIDITY in Headlines makes people want to read!
    WRONG!
    I SPAM EVERY HEADLINE LIKE THAT. Meaning I quit reading most of the posts of people who write those EFFING IMBECILITIES.

VP Kamala Harris publicly mourns Palestinians killed in hostage rescue operation

Vice President Kamala Harris mourned the Palestinians in Gaza who were killed in the successful Israeli hostage rescue operation this weekend during an address delivered over the weekend.

Israeli forces say Hamas intentionally kept the hostages in a “civilian environment.” They also said even the Palestinians who were holding the hostages were also “civilians.”

Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari of the IDF said Hamas has been holding hostages inside civilian buildings, including the locations where Israeli forces rescued Noa Argamani, 26, Almog Meir Jan, 22, Shlomi Ziv, 41, and Andrey Kozlov, 27.

“Before I begin, I just say a few words about the morning which I know weighs heavily on all of our hearts,” she said.

“On Oct. 7, Hamas committed a brutal massacre of 1,200 innocent people and abducted 250 hostages,” she continued. “Thankfully, four of those hostages were reunited with their families tonight. And we mourn all of the innocent lives that have been lost in Gaza, including those tragically killed today.”

The Israeli operation retrieved four hostages who were taken into Gaza by Hamas on Oct. 7. Harris, speaking before the Michigan Democratic Party, celebrated their retrieval but spent more time lamenting the deaths of Palestinians killed in the operation, many of whom Israel has described as terrorists.

“We have been working every day to bring an end to this conflict in a way that ensures Israel is secure, brings home all hostages, ends ongoing suffering for Palestinian people and ensures that Palestinians can enjoy their right to self-determination, dignity and freedom,” Harris added. “As President Biden said last week, it is time for this war to end.”

Fox News reports that Hamas-run authorities in Gaza claim over 270 Palestinians were killed in the Israeli operation, though they make no distinction between militants and innocents. Israeli forces claim the number was fewer than 100.

White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan also confirmed reports on Sunday that some number of innocents appeared to have been killed in the operation.

“We the United States are not in a position today to make a definitive statement about [the death toll],” Sullivan said in a Sunday interview with CNN. “But we do know this: innocent people were tragically killed in this operation. The exact number we don’t know, but innocent people were killed.”

“Every day that we see more innocent people lost is another horrible, awful, tragic day,” he added.
