On Friday, a Russian general publicly announced plans to also invade and occupy the Transnistria region of Moldova, despite the opposition force their troops have been met with from Ukrainians.

Acting commander of Russia’s Central Military District, Brigadier General Rustam Minnekayev, said the Russian Armed Forces plan to “make passage” into Moldova’s East.

The area borders Ukraine and is less than 30 miles from the port city of Odessa. The plan is to create a “land corridor to Crimea” Russian media reported. The corridor allegedly would connect Russia’s mainland to Transnistria.

The New York Times reports the Moldovan government has been concerned with an attempt by Russia for years, as Transnistria is “a thin sliver of territory that is controlled by at least 12,000 separatists and Russian troops.”

Additionally, the Times adds “since the war erupted, the Moldovan and Ukrainian militaries have faced the extra concern of whether the Transnistrians were going to jump into the battle and start attacking Ukraine from the west. So far, that has not happened.”

Moscow holds “nearly 100 percent of Moldova’s energy supply.” Immediately after the General’s comments, the Moldovan government “summoned the Russian ambassador to complain about the general’s statement, saying it was ‘not only unacceptable but also unfounded’ ad led to ‘increased tension.”

    The russsians are destroying much of Ukraine, of buildings, roads and more.
    As we see the allies loading Ukraine with “arms” that will be used against Russian forces, using Ukraine as the “staging area”.
    What physical damage russia has brought to Ukraine will be OVERSHADOWED by the loss of ukraines CULTURE forever.

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.
