Wednesday morning Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke to United States representatives and President Biden in a desperate plea. He also played a video showing the horrors the Ukrainian people are living through.

Zelensky said to President Biden, “I see no sense in life if it cannot stop the death,” he said. “President Biden, you are the leader of our great nation. I wish you to be the leader of the world. Being the leader of the world means being the leader of peace.”

Zelensky stated, “remember Pearl Harbor…Remember September 11th…Our country experiences this every day, right now, at this moment, every night for three weeks now.” Being able to “close the skies over Ukraine” means the U.S. could shoot down Russian aircraft that flies over Ukraine in an act of war.

Zelensky once again asked for a ‘no fly zone’ over Ukraine so Russian aircraft could not attack from above. Also, Zelensky suggested creating a new union of “responsible countries” that have the “strength and consciousness to stop conflict immediately.” That would be done by imposing sanctions, providing humanitarian support, and as a result, would “keep peace” and “save the world and save lives.”

“If such an alliance existed today, we could save many lives in our country.”  Zelensky also proposed that the U.S. sanction all politicians in the Russian Federation; those who are “responsible for aggression in Ukraine.”

Zelensky also asked that American companies halt doing business in the Russian market immediately and suggested ports should be closed for Russian goods. “Peace is more important than income.”

    Biden is too busy protecting his son Hunter — at ANY cost! He’s had a life of luxury without contributing anything feasible to society; why should he care now when he never did???

    Zelensky is wrong on one capital point: Biden is NOT the leader of the World!!! Biden is a corrupt pedo-rapist, coward and senile, only leader of a corrupt, coward and senile nation: the USA! A nation of losers, not the leaders but the laughingstock of the world!

    I say send Biden and Harris to run his country into the dirt like they have done to the US! He would be having second thoughts about asking this duo for any help! We shouldn’t have anything to do with his squabbles with Putin! Let them fight it out, and for once—LEAVE THE USA OUT OF IT!

    The countries surrounding Russia should all turn Russia and destroy them the same way they are doing to the Ukrainians. Yes, peace is more than income.

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.”
