Death to Putin
Report from Ukraine
The war continues, the need for assistance remains.
Incomplete outcome from the latest Ramstein meeting on Ukraine defense.
The latest Ramstein meeting was both encouraging and disappointing. Encouraging news came in the form of commitments to improve Ukraine’s air defense capabilities including accelerated training in the use of the systems being provided. Disappointing news came in the form of less than hoped for promises of heavy armored vehicles, especially modern main battle tanks (we’re all staring at you, Germany).
Ukraine is fully expected to face a new major offensive from Putin’s armies of war criminals. Ukraine’s outnumbered armed forces are preparing to face this offensive as well as working to mount their own offensive and they need all the modern armor they can muster.
Here is a recent video report proving some perspective:
If NATO wants to avoid direct conflict with Russia, assistance to Ukraine must expand
Ukraine does not have the population that would be required to survive and win a protracted war of attrition defending itself from Russian aggression. Ukraine’s success in this conflict depends on being able to significantly outperform Putin’s forces. Ukraine’s allies need to stop dithering about which weapons systems can be used. Ukraine’s military needs more training, more ammunition, and more heavy and/or longer-range equipment. If that means ramping up production, then so be it.
Poland, the Baltic states, and other Russian border states understand all too well what is at stake. Failure to defeat Russia in Ukraine will automatically raise the threat level from Putin’s megalomania. The Putin contagion must be eliminated now before it has a chance to spread.
Russia is a lawless terrorist state
Yesterday, Russia carried out the most massive shelling of Ukraine’s energy system since the start of a full-scale war, Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko said. He noted that this attack could have an impact not only on the energy system of Ukraine but also on the energy systems of some of its neighbors.
Ruzzians steal children
From the Ukraine NOW Telegram:
According to the US State Department, since February 24, 260,000 Ukrainian children have been forcibly removed from Ukraine to remote regions of Russia
State Department spokesman Vedant Patel said that they are aware of numerous facts of how Russian invaders deliberately separate Ukrainian children from their parents and kidnap children from orphanages, and then give them up for adoption in Russia.
“Various sources, including the Russian government, indicate that the Russian authorities have evicted 260,000 children from [Ukraine] to Russia, often to remote areas of the Far East,” Patel said.
