Russia has reached Kyiv, takes negotiations off table until Ukraine stands down

Russian troops have entered Kyiv, and Putin’s Foreign Minister Sergey V. Lavrov has made it clear to Ukraine that no negotiating will take place until Ukraine stands down. Still fighting, Ukraine’s leaders have told its capital residents of Kyiv to “prepare Molotov cocktails” to defend itself.

Officials also warned its citizens to stay indoors as Russia’s forces advance after missile strikes hit Kyiv. Reports say a rocket crashed into a residential building. Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky gave a televised address vowing to defend the country, lamenting that no foreign troops were coming to their aid.

Moscow has made it unequivocally clear that the intention is to swiftly topple Zelensky’s government, which is democratically elected. Ukrainian officials have announced at least 137 Ukrainian soldiers and civilians have been killed.

Russia touted it had seized control over the historically famous Chernobyl nuclear plant, and said it was working with Ukrainian guards to ensure its safety. Ukraine, however, indicated that to be false, saying instead that U.S. troops were holding the plant’s personnel hostage.

Russia’s attack against Ukraine ends a peaceful era in Europe, being one of the most significant military actions since World War II. The New York Times reports:

“Russia’s attack against Ukraine…raises the prospect of a rekindled Cold War between Russia and the West, with potentially devastating consequences for the security structure that has governed Europe since the Soviet Union’s collapse three decades ago…

Essentially, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia is seeking to redraw the post-Cold War boundaries of Europe, establishing a broad, Russian-dominated security zone and drawing Ukraine back into Moscow’s orbit.”

    Ukraine socialists now begging USA to help? You should have thought about that before 2014 and your radical socialist Antifa rioting in Kiev. And the left has been suppressing, litigating, canceling Christian conservatives and their businesses (like Trudeau) especially hard during and since Obama. But oh NOW they want us to pray with them for Ukraine? Just what do they think “reap what you sow” means?

    The only people in the Ukrainian region hating this annexation are the Euro socialists and the stupid left.

    Putin is invading. This started in 2014 with Obama using the CIA to help socialists overthrow & ousting of a duly elected Russian leaning Ukrainian president. Back at ya. They think that they can play Antifa and Occupy with Putin. Not so.

    Putin: We Live In A World Based On Biblical Values; Liberals Are Trying To Dismantle It
    “We” being Russia and the Russian speaking Orthodox Christians in Ukraine who want annexation.

    WAR : by Facebook: These are obvious questions that need to be asked.
    We’re all are Doomed if the Father doesn’t step in & save us.
    (the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine’s “FACEBOOK PAGE”,
    the battalion decided the only way to stop them was to blow up the bridge, reports the Daily Mail. Shakun, a marine, blew himself up along with the bridge; an act of bravery and valor so great it is hard to comprehend.)

    According to the “FACEBOOK PAGE”, Shakun told his comrades he had no time to escape and was going to detonate. Immediately after, they heard the explosion.

    When was he fighting……. 1750? When the military couldn’t have a delayed explosion?
    Are you “SERIOUS?’ We’ve been giving Ukraine for the last 15 years and they didn’t have a detonator?

    The EX-KGB ASSASSIN wants to get the riches the USSR had back.
    The oligarchs are complaining the freedoms the people enjoy are costing them too much. And “””putin””” himself requires a bigger share for his complicit acquiescence.
    The last “””mansion””” of “””putin””” cost $85 Millions to build on the Black Sea. ( Supposedly a “retreat” for the highest people in government. But the Security is a private company working ONLY for “””putin”””!

    You’re wrong. What is happening now is the result of 30 years of NEOCON US aggression on Russia.

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.
