In the previous days we got to see this picture:
What had been hanging in the air for a few months will now make even more people fear that we will be facing a major war after all.
Today we came to see and hear the truth about Donald Trump‘s bosom friend, who also repeatedly claimed not to have done or not to want to do things while the truth showed otherwise.
On several occasions, Russian President Vladimir Putin has claimed that he had no intention of invading Ukraine. He assured the Russians and the rest of the world that he had only called on the army to do its annual exercises. He had, however, made it clear that he did not want Ukraine to join NATO. But he should have known that this is impossible at the moment anyway, because there is still unrest in the federal states of Ukraine.
Adviser to the Head of the President’s Office Mykhailo Podoliak at a briefing in the press centre of the President’s Office told the worldpress:
“At 5 am, Mr. Putin actually declared war against Ukraine. He did it for no reason. There was no reason to declare war against Ukraine unilaterally. Only fake reasons used by Russian propaganda.”
Today is shown clearly that Mr. Putin the previous days did not tell the truth and several propaganda talks and videos that were sent into the world now are proven to be fake and have been used to mislead lots of people worldwide. This Thursday morning 2022 February 24 Ukrainians were shaken awake. Months ago they tried to believe the president from the north, and believed because in away they are from the same blood, that the Russians would not come to attack them.
According to Mykhailo Podoliak, Russian troops using artillery systems began to bomb military infrastructure on the territory of Ukraine, airports, airfields, warehouses and military facilities of the Ukrainian army. After that, ground operations of the Russian armed forces began in part violating Ukraine’s state border in several regions.
“President Volodymyr Zelenskyy immediately convened the Military Cabinet, the National Security and Defense Council. All the necessary decisions were made in terms of the logistics of the counter-operation against the armed forces of the Russian Federation, and martial law was imposed in Ukraine. These are concrete actions to protect our territorial integrity,”
said the Adviser to the Head of the President’s Office.
For the U.S. American president, this attack did not come as a surprise. His secret services had regularly given him updates of the moving troops of the Russian Federation. The leaders of Europe had only yesterday taken measures against the declaration of independence by the Donbass region, but had expressed their intention to reach a solution in some meetings yet to come in order to avoid armed violence.
Already from the early hours of today the Ukrainian President is in constant contact with the leaders of the partner countries.
“Virtually the whole world unanimously believes that this is a treacherous attack by the Russian armed forces, which will have great legal consequences,”
said Mykhailo Podolyak.
In order to avoid panic in his own country and chaos in his and surrounding countries, the President exhorted his people to keep calm and not to do absurd things (like hoarding, for example), which would disrupt the country.
“The Armed Forces are fighting hard battles, but they are fighting. We already have many results. In some areas, the Russian armed forces have been repulsed. The Armed Forces were ready for all of Russia’s scenario plans and are now actively resisting. This resistance will be growing,”
said the Adviser to the Head of the President’s Office.
Mykhailo Podoliak also called on the media to carefully check the information they publish or broadcast.
“Because to date no one has canceled the information war waged by Russia against Ukraine. Unfortunately, some Ukrainian media outlets are reprinting propaganda materials of the Russian Federation,”
For his part, Adviser to the Head of the President’s Office Oleksiy Arestovych noted that according to preliminary estimates, Russia’s first blow failed.
Oleksiy Arestovych noted that, according to preliminary information, the enemy slightly advanced at a distance of up to 5 kilometers in the north of the Kharkiv region and Chernihiv region. The enemy’s advance was repulsed in the Volyn direction.
According to the Adviser to the Head of the President’s Office, the losses of the Ukrainian side did not reduce the combat effectiveness of the Armed Forces and other law enforcement agencies.
“The Armed Forces are ready. The President is working. He runs the country and is in constant contact with international partners, who are now taking steps internationally to punish the Russian Federation for the full-scale military aggression it has committed,”
It is up to the world now to see how Putin has mislead the world by telling lies and how he prepared himself for this second move to enlarge his Russian federal State. This should also make us worry about his other plans to include the Baltic states in his reign.
The northeastern region of Europe containing the countries of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, on the eastern shores of the Baltic Sea, may have had a massive Russian immigration during the second half of the 20th century, probably Putin might wrongly hope taht they would bring those countries to unite with Russia again. Initially, attempts to Russify the Baltic peoples were overt, but later they were moderated as Russian immigration soared and the sheer weight of the immigrant numbers simply served to promote this objective in less-blatant ways. Independence from the Soviet Union in 1991 allowed the Baltic states to place controls on immigration, and, in the decade following, the Russian presence in Baltic life diminished.
Nevertheless, we should not underestimate Putin and, now even more aware of his melachromic plans, carefully weigh his words and work out that they do not have a hidden agenda.

- Russian aggression in Ukraine: Overview, Evidence and Map: The Russian aggression in Ukraine started with the treacherous invasion of Crimea, when in the days of political uncertainty following the popular Euromaidan protests and the escape of Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych, in a swift maneuver, Russian soldiers stormed and seized all government buildings and strategic facilities. They had no insignia, wore balaclavas, and remained silent when approached with questions. Less than a month after the landing of “the little green men,” Russia staged a fake referendum and annexed the Crimean Peninsula.
- The Post-Cold War Ends Just at the end of the Presidency of Ronald Reagan, the Cold War suddenly ended, and the United States displayed a level of military dominance such that the world had never seen. + history is back, and the US is on the wrong side of it.

The powerful will dominate the weak, and we’d better get clear on that, because the rest of the world never forgot it.

- Before Russia attacked Ukraine, a deeper game was already underway Moscow has been passing out Russian passports to those ethnic Russians like candy. But that is far from the first effort to underline the connection. One of the most potent has been Russia’s beating of the drum of shared religion. + This conflict isn’t just being fought by states over borders but by churches over congregants and cultural clout. The Russians want to elevate their Orthodox church and restore its hegemony. Moscow vs. Constantinople is as important a conflict to watch as Putin vs Biden.
- Russia must howl Donald Trump- who never met an authoritarian he didn’t like- just loves Vladimir Putin. He fawned over Putin throughout his presidency, defending him from charges that Russia was involved in hacking the computers of both major American parties during the 2016 campaign despite conclusive evidence to the contrary obtained by the American intelligence community. He enabled Putin’s ongoing goal of undermining NATO by insulting and even lying about other members of the alliance and openly questioning whether NATO was even necessary now that the Cold War is over. + Putin’s overarching goal is to undermine and, if possible, destroy the Atlantic alliance. Donald Trump, of course, is on board. It’s worth reflecting that on one occasion while he was president Russian state television jokingly referred to him as a Russian “asset,” and suggested that, in view of his service to the Rodina, he be offered an apartment in Moscow to move into when he left the White House.

- Not Just a Snapshot: The History of the Russia-Ukraine Conflict In response to Russia’s acts such as the gas crisis, the newly elected President Viktor Yanukovych of Ukraine began negotiating a free trade agreement with the European Union. + Putin declared the Revolution of Dignity an illegal coup and sent Russian soldiers to the Crimea peninsula and instigated a vote in the Crimean parliament to secede from Ukraine and join Russia. + 2021: President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine petitioned NATO leadership for a timeline for membership but was told by U.S. President Joseph Biden that Ukraine did not meet the requirements for NATO membership. However, NATO leadership were able to convince Russia to remove most of their troops from the border. This agreement did not last, and in Nov. Russia re-stationed its troops along the border. + Despite the large numbers of troops surrounding Ukraine, Russia has repeatedly denied that it has plans to invade.. Several countries have attempted to talk with Putin and de-escalate the situation, but these attempts have all been unsuccessful. + At its peak, the Russian Empire covered almost nine million square miles, and stretched from the Baltic Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Even after the end of the Romanov dynasty and the traditional Russian Empire, Soviet Russia and the Soviet Union still essentially functioned as an empire that included modern-day Ukraine. So, from the Russian perspective, Ukraine has always been a part of Russia, and should remain a part of the Russian sphere of influence. However, the Ukrainian language, culture and identity have existed for far longer than the Russian Empire or the Soviet Union. So, from the Ukrainian perspective, Ukraine has always been its own separate entity, and deserves to have its own territory and sovereignty.
