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.

    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.

Report: North Korean ballistic missile fired by Russia into Ukraine contained components sourced from U.S.

A new report from Conflict Armament Research (CAR), a U.K.-based investigative organization, determined that a North Korean ballistic missile which was fired by Russia into Ukraine contained “numerous” electronic components sourced from the U.S. and Europe.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported on the findings, noting approximately 75% of the 290 components analyzed in the missile originated from U.S.-based companies, and an additional 16% of components came from European firms, according to the CAR report.

The electronic components came from 26 countries in total and were largely utilized in the missile’s navigation system, according to the report. It isn’t clear how the components ended up in North Korea’s possession, as the country is strictly sanctioned by a bulk of the international community, but it’s possible other foreign companies, acting as middlemen, bought the components and then diverted them to the communist country.

However, the fact that North Korea was able to acquire so many American electronic component parts suggests “that the country has developed a robust acquisition network capable of circumventing, without detection, sanction regimes that have been in place for nearly two decades,” according to the report.

CAR documents “weapons at the point of use and track their sources back through the chains of supply.”North Korea gathered the components, assembled the missile and shipped it to Russia, all within a relatively short time period, according to the report. The missile was recovered by CAR on Jan. 2, and the investigators determined it could not have been manufactured before March 2023.

The U.S. government and intelligence agencies are working to stop sensitive American intellectual property from ending up in the hands of several foreign adversaries. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin have strengthened their relationship since Russia first invaded Ukraine in February 2022.

“Due in part to our export and sanction controls, Russia has become increasingly isolated on the world stage, and they’ve been forced to look to like-minded states for military equipment,” White House National Security Council (NSC) spokesman John Kirby said during a press briefing in January. “One of those states is North Korea.”
