WAR – Russia Invades Ukraine


At approximately 5:00 am local time, the state border of Ukraine in the area with the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus was attacked by Russian troops supported by Belarus.

Attacks on border units, border patrols and checkpoints are carried out with the use of artillery, heavy equipment and small arms.

This is happening within Luhansk, Sumy, Kharkiv, Chernihiv and Zhytomyr regions.

In addition, the attack is taking place from the direction of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.

The work of enemy sabotage and reconnaissance groups is also recorded.

Depending on the situation on the border, border guards together with the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Guard of Ukraine are firing at the enemy.

There have been condemnations of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine from across the globe.

NATO, Canada, the United States and Great Britain have all condemned the aggressive action taken by Russia under President Putin.

Ukraine is not a NATO member. This allows NATO to make comment, and condemn but not to take active military action as it would in protecting a fellow NATO member.

From unconformable sources it appears that Ukraine soldiers are fighting back hard.

NATO is increasing the defences of NATO members in the region however.

There are early reports of least eight people that have been killed as Russia launched a massive air and ground assault on Ukraine.

NATO will have a virtual summit on Friday with NATO members.

Russian President Putin has evacuated the Russian Embassy in the Ukraine capital.
