Putin is threatening “unprecedented consequences” for any attempt to interfere with Russia’s conquering of the Ukraine….and America’s government is silent.
“The president of Ukraine has declared martial law as Russia launches a military operation in the country. During a public address Thursday. Volodymyr Zelenskyy confirmed Russia carried out drone strikes against their military infrastructure, border guards and border units.
Zelenskyy went on to say explosions were heard in many cities. He urged residents to stay home and remain calm. His remarks came after Russian President Vladimir Putin declared a special military operation in the sovereign country. Zelenskyy said Ukraine’s entire security sector is working and is “ready for anything.”
After being rattled by Russian shells, Ukraine’s interior minister reported hundreds of casualties as a result of the Russian invasion. He also said air fields and military headquarters has been targeted in both Kyiv and Kharkiv. Air raid sirens could be heard throughout the capitol, although Kyiv’s mayor called for residents not to panic. In a Facebook post, the interior minister lamented “the invasion has begun.”
